COURTYARD SERIES: BERKLEE AT THE REGATTABAR - 3 SUDACAS

3 Sudacas are a trio formed by Esther Rojas from Colombia (bass), Marianella Rojas from Venezuela (voice/percussion), and Eduardo Mercuri from Brazil (guitar). They fuse traditional music genres from their native countries with jazz harmony and pop elements for a subtle, fresh sound. They met at Berklee two years ago and have been playing together since then. They were part of the band that played with Alejandro Sanz (three time Grammy Award winner and 16 time Latin Grammy Award winner) at the Latin Grammy Awards in November 2013. In addition, they performed at the Summer in the City Series in Boston in 2014 and were part of the band that played at the Future of the Americas, organized by the Clinton Foundation, in Miami, Florida in December 2014.

Guitarist Mercuri is also a mandolinist, composer, and arranger who graduated with a B.M. in performance in 2014. His Brazilian roots create an incredible mixture with the Latin grooves that Esther, who is currently majoring in contemporary writing and production, brings from her background. The last Sudaca, Marianella, is a double major in vocal performance and contemporary writing and production and brings to the group a jazz/pop sound with her voice.

3 Sudacas are currently working on their first album, which is expected to be released in 2015.

SUMMER 2015 Circus Arts 1/2 Day Program for Kids & Teens. Week 1 July 13 - 17.

If you are new to our program, we would like you to contact us by email (melinda@cirquepassion.com) BEFORE you register your child so we can find out a little more about them and make sure that 1) our classes are appropriate/a good fit for them and 2) there is room in the week you are choosing.

Calling all kids aged 7 - teens! Run away with the circus without actually having to leave home! Moody Street Circus founders Sacha and Melinda Melina Pavlata are hosting / teaching 3 weeks of circus sessions in their Waltham headquarters this year. Each 1/2 day weekly session costs $350.

Moody Street Circus Class size is always deliberately kept low - to around 10 kids per session, to maximize safety and ensure individual attention for all kids to learn circus tricks safely on all the equipment. If your child has trouble following directions or listening to teachers in classes, please don't register them for this program! Safety is paramount in the circus arts and respectfully listening to your teachers is integral to the highest quality experience for all involved. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact Melinda Pavlata, Director of Moody Street Circus: 781 893 2491


HALF-DAY CIRCUS ARTS PROGRAM WEEKS

JULY 13 - 17 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m :: $350

JULY 20 - 24 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

JULY 27 - 31 :: 9 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. :: $350

Students in the circus summer program will learn and practice juggling, plate spinning, light assisted tumbling, pyramid formation, rola bola balancing, hula hoop, walking on the rolling globe, low wire tightrope walking, mini trampoline, and regular trampoline. They will also learn the basics in circus aerial arts including cloud swing, static trapeze, web, lyra (aerial hoop), aerial web, aerial hammock and silks.

  • We start the day with a juggling practice followed by a full-body warm-up with flexibility and strengthening exercises.
  • We proceed to circus tumbling skills on the tumbling mats, including forward rolls, monkey rolls, wheelbarrows, candlesticks, cartwheels and pyramid formation.
  • Throughout each session we introduce some of Sacha Pavlata's multi-generational circus family clowning skits, including Dead Man, Robin Hood the Coin comedy act, the Newspaper and more. KIds can practice their circus theatrics and comedy.
  • When time permits we will be screening some world-renowned circus acts from our private collection and discussing what makes a great circus performance.
  • We break into small groups for safe, assisted learning on the aerial equipment.
  • Students learn and practice at their own pace and according to their own level.
  • While taking breaks from aerial work which can fatigue the arms and hands, students practice ground acts of rola bola, rolling globe, low wire, plate spinning, juggling, trampoline.
  • We end the day with skills on the mini-trampoline - straight jumps, tuck jumps, straddle jumps, dive rolls and - if we decide your child is ready - front tucks.
  • We will provide fresh fruit and bagel with cream cheese snacks daily. If your child has any special dietary needs, do let us know and PLEASE PACK HIS OR HER OWN SNACK. Also, let us know if your child has any allergies or other medical issues.

Program days will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 p.m. Students can be dropped off at 8:45 a.m. Campers must be picked up and signed for on time at 12:30 by their parents or care-givers. Parents are allowed to stay and observe the the program and their kids in action at any time - visit on our comfy futons and watch what your kids are learning from the sidelines.

Attire: Moody Street Circus is a gum-free, street-shoe free zone. We ask that even parents who are dropping off and picking up their children remove their shoes before coming into the studio space. Students will work barefoot, but indoor-use only sneakers and/or acrobatic shoes are suggested for work on unicycle and low wire. Long hair must be worn pulled back in a pony-tail or in braids. No jewelry or zippers on the equipment. We go upside-down on equipment and always follow the SAFETY FIRST! Rule, so: Leotards and shorts or leggings for girls, shorts and shirts that can be well-tucked in for boys. Campers should not be worried about tucking in their shirts when they are upside down, it is very distracting and dangerous when you are learning new tricks to be worried about your clothing. IF YOU DO NOT WEAR A LEOTARD YOU CANNOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROGRAM.

Waiver forms MUST be completed for each camper or participation in the program will not be allowed.

Call Melinda at 781 893 2491 or email her (melinda [at] cirquepassion [dot] com)with any questions. To secure your child's spot in a session, pay online now. Once you are registered, we will email you waiver forms to fill out and send in for your child. This signed form is required prior to participation in any physical activity at Moody Street Circus studio.

MOODY STREET CIRCUS COUNSELOR - IN - TRAINING PROGRAM:

Weeks 1, 2 and 3

9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

$500 per week

4 slots available per week.


AVAILABLE ONLY TO OUR CURRENT STUDENTS AGED 13 and UP. Must have prior permission of program directors. WE HAVE A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF CIT SLOTS, please apply and register early. If you are 12 and want to be in the CIT program, you and your parents must talk with Melinda in person.

Parents of kids who are interested in being a Moody Street Circus Counselor in Training must obtain verbal or written permission of program directors before they can register for the CIT summer program. They must be current students at Moody Street Circus and work well with others. They must be able to attend the program all day. CITs must be proficient at many different circus skills and set good examples to those who are less experienced than they are. They should be generally self-motivated and excited about the prospect of working to improve their skills; they should understand the ideals of proper form, attention to safety, use of breath, and demonstate careful transitions and exit strategies from tricks. They must be patient and enjoy helping younger kids.

DUTIES OF CITs: Moody Street Circus CITs will be working with younger kids in the summer program to demonstrate basic skills (e.g. - how to make wrist hitches in the aerial fabric, Buddha pose and foot knots from the ground, how to practice walking the wire with proper form, how to safely get on and off of the rola bola, etc. CITs will not be teaching anyone tricks in the air. CITs participate in all activities of the morning program - warm up, tumbling, pyramids - and then, with guidance from the directors, help Melinda & Sacha demonstrate skills and assist with the younger campers. CITs help prepare snack and facilitate snack time discussion with the younger kids.

CITs SHOULD PACK AND BRING THEIR OWN LUNCH. After the morning activities, we will eat lunch, then return to the studio for afternoon intensive individualized training that includes circus conditioning and perfecting individual, duet and group acts and skills with lots of one-on-one time from Sacha and Melinda. We will help the CITs set goals, develop their acts, and guide them in their practice. Pick up for CITs is 3 p.m.

Vocal Intensive 1 - Alignment and Breath Monday, June 29 6:30-8:30 PM This 2-hour intensive will explore how to stand/sit using an efficient body position for singing and how to breathe for the best possible sound production. We will sing familiar tunes together to practice both stance and breath support - and the vocal instruction will come from a technical viewpoint that focuses primarily on both alignment and breath. Attendees will learn about diaphragmatic breathing and will take away experience and exercises for further home and rehearsal practice. Everyone will have the opportunity to sing as part of the group (i.e.: choral experience) and also solo. By singing alone in front of the group, attendees will further learn how to "diagnose" problems, and thus develop a more well-rounded understanding of alignment, breath, and support.After theseminar, there will be a time for socialization with light snacks and drinks. The course is open for to up to 10 attendees. Course Cost: $65/person at the door. After reserving your place via the EventBrite site, please contact Bethany at WorrellVoiceStudio@gmail.com for the event location and in case you have any further questions. The course fee will be collected at the door as you enter the Intensive.

Intro to Sewing Machines JULY

Description:

Have you always wanted to sew your own clothes but just didn't know where to start? Do you have your mom's old sewing machine sitting in the corner collecting dust because you don't know how to use it? Sick of throwing clothes away because of a minor tear, or taking your pants to a tailor to get hemmed? In this class, you'll learn the basic skills to get you started with cutting and pinning fabric, and using a sewing machine. To teach these skills, we will be making drawstring waist PJ or lounge pants.

Class Goals:

By the end of this class, you'll know how to thread a sewing machine, wind a bobbin, use a few different stitches on the machines, make a button hole, and cut and pin fabric.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age.

Materials:

Students should come to the first class with 3 yards of flannel or woven cotton (or cotton/poly blend) fabric. Do not buy a knit fabric or fleece. Quilting fabrics work well. Sewfisticated has a wide variety of inexpensive fabrics; they are located at Twin City Plaza in Somerville and at Lamberts Plaza in Dorchester.

(If you are making the pants for a child, someone especially petite, or someone especially large, you may need more or less fabric. Your instructor can be emailed with any questions about the fabric.)

You will also need to bring to class a comfortable to loose-fitting pair of pants that we will use to make a pattern. If you wish to make the pants for someone else, please bring a pair of their pants to class.

Instructor Biography:

Carolyn Emberley sewed her first wallet by hand with some of her mom's quilting scraps and embroidery floss in the third grade. In addition to learning that embroidery floss is not the correct thing to use as thread, she learned to use her mother's sewing machine later that year, and has been sewing things ever since. She has a BFA in Studio Art from UMass Amherst. For most of her time there, she taught a variety of classes at the Student Union Craft Center, including sewing.


Event Time:

Session 1: Monday, July 13, 7:00PM - 9:30PM

Session 2:Monday, July 20, 7:00PM - 9:30PM

The Steel Wheels, The Suitcase Junket opens
Some things come to be in their own time, of their own accord. Such has been the case with The Steel Wheels. In the beginning, it was simply a matter of four young men whod happened to cross paths at a formative moment in each of their lives reveling in the shared experience of plucking acoustic instruments and blending their voices. But over the years, what had begun organically as a pure lark evolved into a mission: to fuse the personal with the universal, the deeply rooted past with the joys and sorrows of everyday existence.

These thematic and stylistic vectors intersect powerfully on Leave Some Things Behind (released April 14 on the bands own Big Ring label), a deeply human, emotionally authentic work that interweaves timely songs with timeless sounds. On the album, co-produced and engineered by Ben Surratt, the four band memberslead singer/guitarist/banjo player Trent Wagler, standup bass player Brian Dickel, fiddler Eric Brubaker and mandolin player Jay Lappare joined on various tracks by rootsmusic luminary Tim OBrien, Nashville-based singer/songwriter Sarah Siskind (who co-wrote two songs and sang on another), drummer Travis Whitmore and Hammond B3 player Ethan Ballinger. Together, theyve wrought a work that is musically intricate and conceptually resonant, the sounds serving the songs at every moment.

www.thesteelwheels.com/

The Suitcase Junket is Matt Lorenz's nationally touring, slide-guitar playing, throat-singing one-man-band. The Suitcase Junket's artistic vision is one of salvaged and repurposed objects, images and emotions. His innovative junk-percussion constructions, original album art featuring inanimate objects with wings, and the high craft of his songwriting all combine to create a unique and engaging entity with a force and style all its own.Lorenz's self-taught throat-singing adds a fascinating edge to the overall sound. "I'm interested in the hidden voices that reside within things: the songs stuck inside instruments, the story behind the object, the mysterious weight of a word, the harmonic sequence that's in every note waiting to be broken as light through a prism."

"The band" is built around a resurrected dumpster-diamond guitar, an old oversized suitcase, a hi-hat, a gas-can baby-shoe foot-drum, a cookpot-soupcan-tambourine foot-drum, a circular-saw-blade bell and a box of bones and silverware that operate much like a hi-hat. He pounds out rhythms with his feet and his twang-and-buzz guitar growls through a couple of old tube amps. On top of all this is the ethereal edge of his overtone throat-singing. This act is unique and not to be missed.
