TWU School of the Arts to host improvisation symposium


DENTON — 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 Texas Commission on the Arts, the National Endowment of the Arts and TWU’s Interdisciplinary Collaboration Initiative.
