Free Mask Workshop for Dancers with Off-Leash Area - January 29 to January 30

In tandem with casting for our 2022 mainstage production, Minotaur, Off-Leash Area is offering two Theatrical Mask Performance Workshops for Dancers. Professional dancers are invited to attend free of charge. Previous mask experience is not required.

Saturday, January 29 – 5:00-7:00pm
Sunday, January 30 – 6:00-8:00pm

at TU Dance Center, 2121 University Ave, St. Paul. Directly behind the Subway restaurant.

Mask performance is an excellent bridge vocabulary between theatrical characterization and dance performance. For the performer, it can be liberating, empowering, and transformative, unleashing untapped reservoirs of energy and imagination.

​Participants will undertake group physical warm-ups geared towards training in mask performance. Participants will don one or more masks in different styles, and present brief improvisations to the group.

Limited space to allow distancing. N95 masks required. For full details and Covid protocols, visit

To sign up for one of both of the workshops or for questions, contact Off-Leash Area at

A designated audition for Minotaur will occur on February 6. Theatrical Mask performance will be an integral vocabulary in the production, so those interested in auditioning are highly encouraged to attend a workshop, and will receive priority for the limited spots.
