  • how to be choreographer, coach, director of movement and dance;
  • how to create an ensemble and professional performance in limited rehearsal time and many more...
Practical sessions are designed to enhance understanding of performance making and rehearsal processes, and skills in pedagogy. 

This workshop is a simple way that can help you formulate your personal unique approach to work with actors and dancers, through the intensive practical training based on the Ostrenko Brothers Method of performer's physical training and rehearsal.

Students may expect to encounter the techniques of such outstanding figures as V. Meyerhold, M. Chekhov, K. Stanislavski which got incorporated into the method by Ostrenko.
