NJ Center for Mime to hold workshop at MSU June 7-25

The New Jersey Center for Mime, the only professional Mime Institute in New Jersey, will hold its 18th annual Mime Workshop at Montclair State University June 7-25. The evening classes will be held in the University's Dance Studio.

Directed by mime artist Yass Hakoshima, workshops will be offered to students "to introduce them to a better understanding of the human body and its expression," according to the workshop organizers. The workshop offers comprehensive training in all aspects of body awareness and movement. The emphasis is on technique, dynamics, theory and improvisation.

Hakoshima is known for his blend of Japanese and Western techniques. His video, "Dream Journey," received the Cine Golden Eagle Award and was nominated for a New York Emmy Award.

Workshop enrollment is limited in order to insure individual attention to each student. Registration deadline is May 28. A discount will be offered to students who register by May 20.
