USD Theatre Students To Attend NYC Open Jar Institute
Garrett, who attended the institute last summer, credits the training received at the Open Jar Institute with exposing him to new concepts. “During my first attendance, I learned invaluable information; new ways of approaching my vocal instrument, new ideas and concepts on how movement connects to each aspect of theatre, and phenomenal dance instruction,” said Garrett.
Under the direction of Broadway Association Director and Choreographer, Jeff Whiting, the students experience five days of high intensity workshops in acting, singing, dance and audition techniques, all taught by Broadway professionals.
Only sixty students nationwide are selected to participate in each of the two summer sessions in late July and early August.
