Arts Center 

(Dress Rehearsal)
At the Faire Site!


The academy is for anyone interested in experiencing the performing arts for the Renaissance Period. In order to participate, one does not have to be experienced but must have the desire to learn. The Academy offers a unique opportunity to learn a wide variety of performance skills and disciplines while developing, demonstrating and testing your emerging skills. Academy workshops will include characterization, improvisation, costuming, language and dialect, faire survival skills, brief overview of history & religion, customs and manners. The Academy is taught by highly experienced professionals in the Renaissance performance arena and is offered at no tuition cost to all participants, crafters, vendors, staff and any other interested persons.The only other requirements for attendance are: timely arrival to Academy and all classes, a commitment to participating, a willing, attentive and enthusiastic learning attitude, a pencil with an eraser and paper for taking notes.We ask that those who attend Academy classes be in class during the times they are scheduled; loitering outside the classes is disrespectful and distracting. We have a very short amount of time to cover a great deal of information and so we ask that everyone participate fully.
