After an 18 month absence, Stan has returned to in studio classes with his popular series, “Up On Your Feet!” in our new location, Studio B at Smuin Ballet, 1830 17th St. San Francisco. All SF City Covid protocols will be followed: proof of full vaccination and masking (when not performing) are required to participate. Class size will be limited to 8 students in Studio B, a beautiful 680 square foot space with a new HVAC system and excellent ventilation. For 18 and above. Additionally, and because self-tapes have become the new audition paradigm for the foreseeable future, each student’s personal phone will be used to record their work. These classes will focus on the mechanics of creating your own, effective audition tapes. Each student’s work on camera will be recorded on their phone for both playback in class and later viewing at home."Stan’s great because he gets to the point and he’s honest. He doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, he tells you what you need to hear." K.
