Welcome to our third installment of our Faculty Friday series, where we highlight our musical theater and acting faculty for ArtsBridge Summer 2015!
If you missed our first posts, you can find our first one here and our second here. You can always see the entire ArtsBridge Summer faculty here.
Byron Easley will be joining us for his second year of ArtsBridge Summer. He will be teaching dance in Minneapolis this summer. Byron is a professor and Head of Dance at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. We think Byron is so passionate and wise, and we’re so glad he’s back for another summer. Watch some of Byron’s moves here.
Meryl Shaw will be teaching at our Starter Edition program in San Francisco. She has conducted workshops, classes, and intensives at theaters and colleges throughout the country. Meryl was the Casting Director for American Conservatory Theater for 17 years, and she’s now found a unique career as both an acting coach and a life coach. Meryl has a series of auditions tips up on YouTube, check it out!
David Pepin will be joining us for his first year of ArtsBridge Summer, teaching musical theater in Minneapolis. He is the current music director at Baldwin Wallace, and was previously a music director on Broadway (Kinky Boots, Wicked, Bring It On: The Musical, RENT) for over a decade. “David brings a wealth of top-level Broadway Music Direction and keyboard experience,” said Victoria Bussert, Director of Baldwin Wallace’s Music Theatre Department. We feel so lucky to have him at ArtsBridge this summer.
Stay tuned for more fun next Faculty Friday, our fourth and final installment of the series.
