118 N. 11th st. 3rd Floor (btw Berry and Wythe)
From fancy to flop to flight, the world of Clown is full of extremes. In solo, duo, trio, and group work, we’ll examine status, minimum to maximum, letting go to the moment & keeping it simple. Come play in a safe, but challenging class designed for first time Clowns or seasoned Clowns that need a kick in the butt.

“John challenges students to continually go deeper in their self-awareness, to use their emotions intelligently, and to use this power to connect with an audience.” Edy Rodewald, former student
