FOR KIDS (15 AND UNDER):

The Beginning of Broadway: Vaudeville Revue

Duration/Cost can be negotiated; length dependent on group needs.

WICKED, LES MISERABLES and MATILDA might be the huge spectacles of today but when Broadway first started it took its cue from the most popular entertainment of its day...VAUDEVILLE!

 

In a performance based participation workshop, geared towards kids age 15 and younger, Kimberly Faye Greenberg, Fabulous Fanny Star, will take you back 100 years where to succeed in the performing world, every individual was required to create his/her own unique act built only on props and costumes that could be carried with them on the vaudeville circuit.

 

In a class geared for all dance levels, Kimberly will first give a Vaudeville

Fanny Brice performance demonstration, then a simple movement routine will be taught. Afterward props and a unique surprise individual character name will be given to every student so that the creative imagination can take over and each participant can create their own unique “act” and character to showcase at the end of the workshop in our very own mock “vaudeville revue”.
