The first part of the semester is comprised of daily training in movement, extended vocal techniques and Italian language, all of which serve as the foundation for the series of intensive workshops that follow in the second half of the semester. Workshops entail studies in Commedia, as well as a thorough introduction to performance topics including, but not limited to, mask-making and clown.

Students will be guest artists in residence during a working excursion to either Venice or Naples, participating in a professional-level workshop with Accademia faculty.
