The lineup of events includes dance: an open rehearsal by Lisa Leizman dance and an open class by Program Director’s Kelly Silliman. You can also take a tango lesson with Western Mass Tango or an advanced dance class with Fritha Pengelly. Two theater companies offer previews of their shows: Shakespeare Stage’s Twelfth Night, and Real Live Theater’s next show. There will be workshops in Alexander Technique by Abbie Steiner, theatrical training by RLT, and a sample of “sacred rage” by Rhythea Lee.
