Workshop Overview

The art of bringing an inanimate object to life may be as old as the theatre itself, but at Disney it's still happening everywhere you look! Using puppets and techniques from actual Disney productions, students of all ability levels will learn key performance concepts. This 90-minute, hands-on workshop reinforces the basics for beginners while allowing advanced performers to stretch their puppeteering skills.

Requirements: This course has a minimum of 15 participants. Large groups may be split between two workshop locations at no additional cost. Minimum age is 11 years old.
