The Classes; do we choose what we take?
All students will move through the same curriculum. This will be a pre-determined, yet flexibly taught, series of classes exploring and connecting spoken word and music expression of our voices – only. These fun yet challenging classes are designed to reduce inhibitions and break down barriers as we promote socialization, interaction, cooperation and creative advancement in the process.
These sessions are based on experiencing a variety of vocal applications in a sequence of topics by our faculty staff. We’ll be encouraged to try new things that may place us outside our comfort zones – which is an awesome opportunity for creative growth in this safe and supportive environment of learning.
No need to ‘choose’ classes; we’re going to do it ALL!
Lodging and Accommodations
Tokayana Cottage is located in Colfax, CA (Northern California foothills east of Auburn) with the smell and feel of clean springtime air. We may have cool nights and the days will likely be very pleasant this time of year so pack clothing to fit springtime weather. Bring a hat for warmth and/or shade and some layers for outdoor activities. Bring comfortable shoes and an extra pair of shoes for walking or hiking. If you’re a light sleeper, a set of ear plugs would be a good thing to bring. We’ll try to have extras on hand should you forget.
This facility has shared rooms with both twin, bunk and full beds. There are also a few trundle beds for folks coming with friends that don’t mind being a bit cozy. Women will bunk together – and men will bunk together. There are also a few rooms available for couples. Let us know if you have any specific lodging requests or needs. We will do our best to accommodate your inquires on a first come / first basis.
KEEP IN MIND WE HAVE ONLY 30 SPACES THIS YEAR 2020!
