This Intensive will explore the theme: Inner and Outer Connection. Participants will experience sessions in yoga, meditation, jazz technique, acting, career management and more, led by this year’s featured instructors: Sam Manchulenko and Sharon Bajer.

The Intensive was originally founded in the spirit of ‘spring training’ for artists who were cast in upcoming Rainbow Stage productions. In March 2018, Rainbow Stage will be partnering with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra once again, presenting A Chorus Line at the Centennial Concert Hall. This year’s Intensive draws from the themes and content of the musical.

A Chorus Line features true to life characters who are forced to be real, vulnerable, honest and brave, as they each tell their stories. We hope this year’s training will help all involved to connect inwardly and outwardly in order to gain the awareness, skills and confidence to deliver impactful performances in their upcoming productions.
