2-Day Level 1 Storytelling Workshop ($150)

The 2-Day Storytelling Workshop is a compressed version of the 6-session class, with a smaller class size to allow for maximum stage and feedback time for each student, and a break between sessions to allow students time to develop their stories. Perfect for dipping your toes into storytelling waters for the first time, or a quick brush up on your skills if you’re a seasoned pro.

Day 1 consists of exercises that will help you identify and refine a story to tell to the class. Day 2 is when students will perform their stories in class and receive in-depth feedback from their instructor and classmates.

This class is open to all students. No experience required.

6-Session Level 1 Storytelling Workshop ($350)

The Story Studio’s 6-session Level 1 storytelling workshop provides students with an encouraging, constructive environment in which to practice storytelling each week and receive feedback from their instructor and peers. Exercises in class focus on classic story structuring, building suspense, eliciting emotion, recreating drama, digging deeper into a story’s meaning, and using your voice and body to add levels to your listeners’ experience, so that your story stays with them. The class size will be limited to allow maximum individual attention and storytelling practice time for each student in each class session.

This class is open to all students and is a prerequisite for our level 2 class. No experience required.

6-Session Level 2 Storytelling Workshop ($350)

Open to all who have completed a Story Studio workshop. The focus of this 6-week class is on refining your authentic voice and honing performance skills, as well as working in-depth on new or existing stories.

 

You will work toward mastering the techniques you have already learned, and practice crafting and refining stories in a supportive group with other advanced students. The instructor will suggest possible projects to work on, but you can choose to focus on whatever will be most productive for you personally, such as components of a one-person show, a 5-minute story, a 20-minute story, or stories with a specific emotional or stylistic goal. The class size will be limited to allow maximum individual attention and storytelling practice time for each student in each class session.

PLEASE NOTE: Students must take The Story Studio’s Level 1 6-session storytelling course, 2-day storytelling workshop, or an equivalent course before taking the Level 2 course. Please email admin@thestorystudio.org if you have questions about whether you qualify to enter this course before registering.

2-day Level 2 Storytelling Workshop ($150)

Open to all who have completed a Story Studio workshop.

You will workshop one story in a supportive group setting with other advanced students. Prompting and brainstorming will be given as warm-up exercises at the beginning of the class, but you are also welcome to bring in one story, around 7-8 minutes long, to workshop. Whether your goal is to breathe new life into a story you have already crafted or discover a new story to work on, this class is the perfect place for a storyteller to refresh, refine, and find new inspiration.

 

Day 1 consists of exercises that will help you craft your story. On Day 2, all students will perform their stories in class and receive feedback from their instructor and classmates.

PLEASE NOTE: Students must take The Story Studio’s Level 1 6-session storytelling course, 2-day storytelling workshop, or an equivalent course before taking the Level 2 course. Please email admin@thestorystudio.org if you have questions about whether you qualify to enter this course before registering
