UMS Night School:
Writing about Performance

Looking to attend more performing arts events? Interested in further developing your writing skills? Want to explore the performing arts with a like-minded group of community members?

This six-week course will dive into the many ways the written word can interact and respond to what is being presented on stage. Join U-M Professor of Dance Clare Croft for this interactive, conversational course that will help you critically examine what you’re seeing on stage while developing your own writing skills. From personal reflection and blog comments to critical reviews and inspired creative writing, this course will use the performing arts as a starting off point for a range of exploratory exercises.

To participate in UMS Night School, you must register through the Rec & Ed website and pay the registration fee. Registration opens on Monday, December 18, 2017.

The UMS performances connected to this course are:

The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess (Opera in Concert)
Saturday, February 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm

Piedmont Blues: A Search for Salvation
Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 7:30 pm

This event is part of a new collaboration between UMS and Ann Arbor Public Schools Community Education & Recreation (“Rec & Ed”).

UMS and Rec & Ed are teaming up to offer pre-performance classes created especially for first-time UMS attendees, for curious audience members, and for anyone who simply enjoys attending performances with a group. Each UMS class will be facilitated by a dance, jazz, or classical music expert and feature conversation, interactive exercises, and mini lectures that will help you better understand the genre and have a more enjoyable UMS performance experience. The classes will bring you together with other audience members who are curious about the performing arts and want to learn more.

Registration for UMS classes includes a ticket to the performances, workshop fees, transportation to/from the performance venue, and light snacks before the performance. To participate in UMS 101, you must register through the Rec & Ed website and pay the registration fee (which includes a ticket to the performance).

Class sessions will take place at Pioneer High School, and group transportation will be provided to and from the performance venue via coach. (Sorry, no ticket exchanges or refunds for previously purchased tickets.)
