Youth Performance Ensemble
For young performers ages 14 to 18 (must be in high school to participate in our performance ensemble).
The Youth Performance Ensemble is geared towards the presentation of a different unscripted performance format each term - under the mentorship & direction of members of Bad Dog's resident professional cast: the Canadian Comedy Award-nominated Bad Dog Repertory Players. Accordingly, each class will focus on the various areas of improvised skill required to do so (i.e. character work, narration techniques, genre research, teamwork/group mind, advanced gameplay, physicality, etc.). The chosen format each term will be tailored to both challenge and showcase the ensemble members.
The Youth Performance Ensemble will also have a chance to perform at other times throughout the semester!
