Get back to basics and hone your improv chops in this six week class taught by BTW’s beloved instructor Emma Piazza.  This class will be fun and interactive.  Students will participate in theatre games intended to support collaboration, mental flexibility, listening, and communications skills. They will dive into improvisational exercises, vocal/body work, and dramatic play intended to free up the mind so as to be more creative with choices and instincts in their acting work.  Improvisation is one of the core techniques used by actors.

Nothing to prepare at home for this class… just show up and get ready to stretch the imagination, spark spontaneity, and embark on unforgettable moments of fun!

She has fond memories of performing in the SJR productions of Footloose, Pippin, Les Miserables and The Prince and the Pauper during her own high school years at Immaculate Heart Academy. Janel went on to Muhlenberg College, where she earned both a Bachelor’s Degree in Dance and Certification in Elementary Education. Along with her performance experience in college, she was given the opportunity to choreograph several student dance concerts. She was President of the Muhlenberg Dance Association, became an instructor for the Muhlenberg Community Dance Center and was inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society. After college, Janel enjoyed opportunities that allowed her to perform, choreograph and teach. She performed at the Special Olympics Opening Ceremony in 2014 and the Bruno Mars Super Bowl Halftime Show at MetLife Stadium. She has been a member of the dance fusion company, Bollywood Funk NYC, and was a dancer/choreographer for the Gotham City Cheerleaders. 

 She has also choreographed the BTW productions of GodspellShe Loves Me,The Drowsy Chaperone and Mamma Mia! and the SJR production of The Addams Family and Mystic Pizza. Her proudest achievement came seven years ago when she opened her dance studio, Janel’s Dance Arts Fusion.
