Our workshop is from 5pm-6pm tonight!!
AGES 11 and UP

Taught by Taylor Body!
Have you ever been cast in a “small” role? Have you ever been disheartened by receiving a “non-speaking” role? Every role is important in a show, if it wasn’t the writer would not have included it. Taylor Body will be leading an open discussion workshop where she will explain how and why every character is important in a show. We will use this time to learn of ways to practice gratitude for any role we may be cast in. Showing grace, support, and positivity in any role will help you become a well respected and appreciated performer. This workshop will include an open discussion where students will be encouraged to share their experiences and thoughts. We will then work with each student to see the bright side of every role in hopes that if cast in a “small” role in the future, our student will perform it to the best of their ability with excitement and joy.​

Location: Zoom

Ages 11 and up.

💕Every Character Is Important💕

Have you ever been cast in a “small” role? Every role is important in a show, if it wasn’t the writer would not have included it. Taylor Body will be leading an open discussion workshop where she will explain how and why every character is important in a show. This workshop will include an open discussion where students will be encouraged to share their experiences and thoughts. We will then work with each student to see the bright side of every role in hopes that if cast in a “small” role in the future, our student will perform it to the best of their ability with excitement and joy.

💕How to Balance Your Priorities💕

We live in a world with new opportunities surrounding us. There is always a new class, a new show, or a new hobby to learn. How do you know which to choose? Taylor Body is here to teach our students how to prioritize new and recurring opportunities in our lives. She will help us recognize what tasks make us happy and what tasks we are doing because we feel it is “appropriate” or “necessary”.

💕Workshopping Your Monologues💕

!NEW DATE AND TIME!
Tired of going from audition to audition not knowing if what you’re doing is “good” or “right”? Tired of picking a monologue that was easy to find and memorize just because it was the first thing you found? We’re here to help you change that for next time. Led by Taylor Body, students will share monologues and performance strategies while receiving individualized feedback. Taylor will use her experience and guidance to show students how to best perform and pick their monologues.

💕$10 per workshop, $25 for all three💕

Dear ICE Families-

Many of our students have reached out regarding the recent events surrounding the killing of George Floyd, searching for ways to discuss issues of racism and diversity and wanting to figure out how to most effectively be part of the solution. We want to bring our students the resources to do just that. We are pleased to announce we have partnered with educator Julia Braxton (see Bio below) who will facilitate five separate sessions on the following topics:

• Identity
• Privilege
• Bias and Prejudice
• How unequal are we?
• Call to Action

We hope you will join us in these necessary conversations. Registration will open tomorrow and is free. Please note this class is intended for current high school students.

💫Meet our Artistic Director! 💫

Ms. Emilie Fletcher:

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, LEAD TEACHING ARTIST

Emilie is a mother and artist. She has been a director and teaching artist for the last 9 years. With a Bachelor's in Fine Arts in Theatre for Youth from Shenandoah University, Emilie is a known theatre for youth director and teaching artist in VA and MD. Her favorite types of plays have a lesson that is learned through empathizing with a character or group of characters that are searching for an answer or trying to prove a point. Her passion for teaching is driven by the moments when she can discuss with young people and adults about different thought processes and lifestyles that are unfamiliar and unexplored.

Emilie's main goal in life is to create art with people and students that want to make the world a happier place through exploring their creativity and productively providing art to the community. She hopes to make that dream possible through I.C.E. Collaborative Arts.

Ms. Emilie will be teaching with all of our student apprentices for the 7-10 and 11-13 classes and will be monitoring and organizing all of our online classes. She is so excited to be able to continue our classes and shows this summer with you. We hope to see you there!! 💜💙
