Join us for our Online Dance Call experience Class, for actors and singers who want to improve their dance skills in a safe and supportive environment!

Every Friday, students will be sent a video lesson from Austin, focusing on a different musical theatre dance genre. Austin will present a new combination for each of the six sessions. The class will not only cover choreography, but students will learn terminology and technique specific to each style.

Once you watch the weekly video, you have the weekend to film yourself performing that week’s choreography and submit it to us using Google Drive by Monday. Then we’ll schedule a roughly 15 min ZOOM meeting between Austin & you based on your schedules where he will provide individual feedback on your performance. He’ll also be able to break down difficult steps with you via video and watch you perform and offer guidance and feedback.

1 SPOT LEFT!

ACANY’s Fall 2020 Virtual Play

Director: Broadway & TV Star, Joe Carroll (FROZEN, BANDSTAND, CINDERELLA, THE POLITICIAN, NEW AMSTERDAM)

Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

ALMOST MAINE is an ensemble show written by Tony Nominated Actor and Playwright John Cariani (FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, SOMETHING ROTTEN, THE BAND’S VISIT).

This show is made up of two person scenes and monologues that will ensure every member of our cast has their moment to shine! There’s no such thing as a lead role in this production, as all parts are equal in size.

There is no audition required to participate, actors must submit a self tape prior to our first rehearsal. Roles will be handed out on October 4.

Please Prepare: A one-minute contemporary monologue from a published play. If you need a monologue, you may request one after registration.

The entire rehearsal process will take place via zoom. Actors will utilize zoom’s features, such as breakout rooms, to rehearse 1-on-1 with their scene partners and Joe, our director.

On our final day, we will film the production using virtual backgrounds and the actor’s own home environments. The show will be edited together, and we’ll be hosting a viewing party with the cast, family, friends, and scouting industry guests 2 weeks later!
