We’re proud to announce that our next class, SEPTEMBER INTENSIVE, which will run September 2-6 2014, will be taught by the multi-award winning clown Phil Burgers (aka Dr Brown), whose clown antics have dazzled audiences around the world since 2009. Phil’s clown masterclasses in Australia, the UK, Spain, Croatia, and New Zealand have developed an amazing reputation for their unique qualities. We are delighted to welcome Phil to The Clown School for his first engagement in the US as a clown teacher, and we can promise that the SEPTEMBER INTENSIVE will be an unforgettable experience.
Also starting September 2014, CLOWN SCHOOL FOR KIDS opens its doors, offering classes to Mini Clowns (ages 7-12) and Young Clowns (ages 13-18). Taught by accredited and acclaimed instructor Mike Funt, our kids classes promise to make art out of mischief and give a voice and a space to play to all youngsters who are itching to put on red nose and crazy costume.
Stay tuned for our regular Fall classes, starting mid-September, taught by David Bridel and Zach Steel, including SAVE THE SHOW, a Level 3 Clown Class.
And lastly, David’s book, Clowns: In Conversation With Modern Masters, co-written with colleague Ezra LeBank, brings together interviews with many of the world’s leading clowns. Scheduled for publication by Routledge in April 2015, the book promises a fascinating exploration of the world of the clown, in the words of masters such as Slava Polunin, Bill Irwin, David Shiner, Oleg Popov, Nola Rae, Lorenzo and Larry Pisoni, and many many more.
Be sure to join us for all things clown in 2014.
