John Calandra,

The workshop started as a project about 30 yrs ago with a group of kids from strasberg institute that hung out all day discussing techniques and doing scenes in Union Square park, down the block from the school. A street dancer that blended breakdancing and popping into scenes and would pop-act or break-act them out that reflected emotionally more on movement as oppose to verbal lines. John interposed a creative hip-hop outlet for youth and began teaching his own techniques in dance and theatre and became accustomed to teaching. john grew up with a background of studies, and performances in acting, dancing, and literature, and music as well.
