Pacific Singers and Actors Workshop

With once-per-week 60-minute sessions, Pacific Singers & Actors Workshop presents classes in foundational singing technique, acting, and improvisation directly on school campuses. We introduce consistent use of tools and habits to allow students to develop and explore self-expression and creativity. This emphasis on process enables the student to make strong, appropriate, and personal choices in their performances. 

By rehearsing the tools and habits presented in class, students have the opportunity to gain confidence, poise, flexibility, self-awareness, use of imagination, the ability to collaborate with others creatively, and the ability to be non-judgmental towards themselves and others.  

Pacific Singers & Actors Workshop is a startup nonprofit conceived in 2012 by Curt Branom, Kristin Clayton, and Nicolle Foland as an after school performing arts program for middle and high school students to be presented on San Francisco Bay Area school campuses. As highly-trained professionals, we have a collective 70 years of experience in the worlds of musical theater, acting, opera, and classical music. We were fortunate to receive encouragement to reach our highest potential in the performing arts during our middle and high school years, and we are now in a position to give that same encouragement to those students who may lack exposure to performing arts during the school day.

Author's Circle

Do you like to write stories just for fun? Did you ever want to participate in a poetry slam? Then Author's Circle is for you! Author's Circle is a place where we write and share our short stories, poems, vignettes, and, sometimes, a collaborative novel with fellow authors. At the end of this activity we will host a publishing party showcasing our best work. Open to middle school.
