School at Nashville Shakes

The School at Nashville Shakes, taught by some of NSF's teaching artists, directors, fight choreographers, and actors is for aspiring Shakespeareans seeking to learn a variety of methods and techniques to help with their understanding of Shakespeare's language and performance elements.  The workshops found in the curriculum are vast and diverse, where the student chooses what area best suits their needs; be it voice work, physical work, text analysis, combat skills, or the basic building blocks of the bard. No matter the need, we guarantee that time will be dedicated to the individual to help them grow as an artist.
