Day 1: Teaching Artist leads physical and vocal warm-ups/games
Day 2: Students begin taking a leadership role in running warm-ups/games
Day 3: Students continue their leadership role in running warm-ups/games
Day 4: Students continue their leadership role in running warm-ups/games
Day 5: Students continue their leadership role in running warm-ups/games

All for a single, One-Week Residency Fee!
UBU Project Residencies can also be extended over multiple weeks to help create a more production-oriented performance for classmates, families and staff (i.e. The Class Spring Project Based Upon Core Content).
