The fifth season of our Professor Training saw our biggest enrollment yet, with sixteen dedicated teaching artists from Utah to Puerto Rico! Several new professors joined returning teaching artists to create a group with incredible energy and focus toward enhancing their teaching skills and syllabi with Margolis Method exercises and improvisation structures. Denise Myers and Jennifer Stott Madsen-Whatcott completed their Level III Certification. Both are true champions of empowering artists to become Actor Warriors! They will continue their training and honing their specialties. Jennifer is focusing on Margolis Method's powerful application for singers and Denise brings more Margolis Method to every class and directing opportunity.
Summer Session also saw its biggest enrollment, and the studio was energize by 22 new and returning training artists who brought tremendous creativity and a hunger to learn. The growth these artists made was substantial and inspiring for the entire faculty--a teacher's dream! Many scholarship recipients contributed invaluable hours to make the MB ADAPTORS' production, HEADSHOT!, a huge success. In doing so, they also learned many new theatre-making skills. It was a fantastic opportunity for the training center and professional company to work in concert.
