Have you ever wanted to learn from the stars you see on the stage? In 2016, Frankston Arts Centre is presenting all kinds of workshops from drumming to dance to acting, delivered by the professional artists who will be starring in the performances.
In March, the internationally-acclaimed Brazilian Afro-fusion band Ara Ketu arrives on Aussie soil to perform at Frankston’s own Ventana Fiesta. Before they step on the Frankston Arts Centre stage on March 10, they are offering two workshops at 6pm. Choose from either drumming or samba and learn the beats and moves that were made famous on the streets of Rio. Tickets are only $10 if you have a performance ticket to the show at 8pm or $15 for the workshop only.
On Tuesday 22 March, the actors from the smash production 4000 Miles are offering a workshop for students in Year 11 and 12. Learn contemporary acting skills and storytelling techniques from members of the touring company and then see them putting these skills to impressive effect as they perform this award-winning play about a grandmother and the extended stay by her couch-surfing grandson. The 10am workshop is free with a performance ticket to the show at 8pm.
In April, young aspiring dancers will get the opportunity to work with the cast from Vincent. The LissaJane Dance Company will deliver a workshop in exhilarating contemporary dance on Saturday 2 April at 11am & 1.30pm prior to the performance at 7.30pm. The workshop is $10 for those with a ticket to the show or $15 for those just planning to attend the workshop only.
