This is to confirm that you are registering for Mini-Intensive A with David Smukler, taking place January 16-20, running 7:00pm - 9:30pm, Monday through Friday. To register, please scroll down to the very bottom of this page and select the workshop fee that applies to you. Once you've completed this online registration, a confirmation email will be sent to you that includes the following details:
1. All classes take place at The Post at 750 in the East Studio, which is part of the CBC complex at 750 Hamilton Street. The studio will be open at 6:30pm for individual warm-up. Sessions will begin at 7pm sharp!
PLEASE NOTE: 750 Hamilton is not at street level. The easiest way to find it is to get yourself to Hamilton Street between Robson and Georgia. Mid-block, with the Library behind you, you will be looking at a JJ Bean coffee kiosk. To the right of that, you will see a set of concrete steps. At the top of the stairs is the front entrance under a red sign that says "750 Hamilton". Dial 110 on the entryphone to be admitted to The Post at 750. Those with mobility issues are encouraged to use the elevator in the atrium of the CBC Broadcast Centre at 700 Hamilton Street, then go past the Security desk to the breezeway. 750 will be on your left when you exit the doors at Security.
The Post at 750 is easily accessible by transit. For those with cars, the underground parking garage for the Central Branch of the Vancouver Public Library is right across the street.
2. Workshop prep: please have 10-20 lines of text memorized for use during exercises. David's specialty is classical text, so anything from Shakespeare's canon (including sonnets) would be fine; however, if you're working on a contemporary piece, by all means, bring that in. Some people like to have two pieces prepared in order to challenge themselves in different ways (and you have a ready alternative if someone else brings in the same piece!)
3. Wear loose, comfortable clothing. Layers are best, as the studio temperature is sometimes unpredictable. Bring lots of water; the voice works much better when hydrated. You may wish to bring a yoga mat or towel, as there can be a lot of lying on the floor!
If you have interested friends or colleagues unable to take the entire workshop, they may be able to drop-in for $75 per evening class January 16-20. Please review our drop-in policy.
CANCELLATION POLICY: Full fee will be returned with minimum 7 days notice by email or phone call before first class. If less than 7 days notice of cancellation, fee less $50 deposit will be returned. If there's a waiting list, and someone takes your place, full fee will be returned.
Contact us if you should have any questions.
