Description:

The key to each actor’s creative genius lies in their sense of play.

Taught by the incomparable ZBS faculty, we will combine the meaningful, professional and holistic training ZBS is known for, with some true summer fun! This is not only an enormous opportunity to evolve your art, but to have a ridiculously good time doing it.
