New Skool kicks from Bare

Edinburgh’s Bare Productions has launched Bare Academy, aimed at providing local amateurs with opportunities to improve their skillsets and confidence in dance, acting and singing.

Bare’s aim is to ensure that classes are accessible and affordable for all. Classes are designed for all levels of experience from absolute beginner to those who are well accustomed to performing on stage.

Bare Academy Autumn semester starts this week.

Bare’s Dominic Lewis told Æ: “We designed Bare Academy to allow for anyone to come along to one place to improve their skillsets and we hope that they leave feeling more confident in their own abilities.

“This semester, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all classes will be offered online and are therefore open to anyone in the AmDram community regardless of geographical location.”

The Academy is offering a four week acting course led by Caroline Dyega looking at the techniques used to bring a character from page to stage while stamping your own mark on the role.

It is also offering four dance classes. A masterclass with Jodie Steele, which is already fully subscribed, and three “step by step” classes – Dancing in Heels; Contemporary Jazz; and Commercial.

Bare Step by Step

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or you’re looking for an excuse to sashay in your hallway, Step by Step will give you the opportunity to try out a variety of dance genres and learn the fundamentals of each. Classes will consist of a warm-up and exercises to help you improve your skills. By the end of each session you’ll learn a fully choreographed routine using the techniques you’ve learned throughout the classes.

· Dancing in Heels – Tuesdays 3, 10 and 17 November at 7pm.
· Contemporary Jazz – Sundays 1, 8, and 15 November at 3pm
· Commercial – Sundays 22, 29 November and 6th December at 2pm

Individual Classes £4 or a full set of three in each genre for £9.

Bare Line by Line

This class is taught by Olivier nominated actress Caroline Dyega and looks at how to develop a character from page to stage whilst putting your own unique stamp on the role.

During the course, Caroline will cover script analysis, character study, directed rehearsal and improvisation. The course will ultimately give participants some new tools and skills, as well as a newfound confidence when preparing for future auditions and performances.

· 4 week course on Sundays from 8 November at 6pm
· £8 for individual session or £28 for all four classes
