TWU School of the Arts to host improvisation symposium
Texas Woman’s University School of the Arts performers
will be taken somewhat out of their element in improvisation
exercises designed to enrich their artistic performance.
Dancers will speak,
singers and musicians will move and actors will sing as TWU’s
School of the Arts hosts a “Symposium on Improvisation
and Performance” Sept. 25-27, with guest director Ann
Baltz. Group sessions are scheduled from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday
through Wednesday, with the event culminating in a performance
at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27. All events are free and open
to the public and will take place in the Margo Jones Performance
Hall, located at Oakland and Sawyer streets on TWU’s
Denton campus. For more information, call (940) 898-2508.
Ms. Baltz will
work with the Denton High School Choir and the Robson Ranch
Choir in addition to TWU classes in dance, drama and music.
Ms. Baltz is a faculty member at California State University
at Northridge and founder of Opera Works, a nationally acclaimed
performance training program. A master teacher of performance
skills and improvisation for opera companies, conservatories
and universities, she has been heralded as one of the leading
opera educators in America today.
The symposium is
sponsored by grants from The Greater Denton Arts Council,

the Arts and TWU’s Interdisciplinary Collaboration Initiative.
