Learnapalooza- FREE day of various classes!

Learnapalooza is a great free festival, and this year, they're expanding into Lakeview. My theatre company, Theatre Momentum, is hosting half the classes (including some dance classes!) at our studio in Lakeview on July 21st. There are three venues- the Theatre Momentum Studio, Evolution Wine and Spirits, and State Farm's Next Door Cafe, even though the meetup event just shows the TM Studio (simpler than making 3 events).

Anyhow, here's a bit about the festival:

The Learnapalooza festival is a community-building event offering free workshops and classes lead by volunteers and hosted by local businesses.

All the classes are free, only about an hour long, and there are a ton of terrific offerings. And there's talk of an after-party (likely at the Cork Lounge, next to the Addison Brown Line), so you can mix and mingle with teachers, other students, and the great volunteers who keep this event going.

There's a ton of classes, and you HAVE to sign up on the website- RSVP'ing here just lets me and your fellow meetup'ers know you'll be there, but is NOT official. You can just show up the day of, and if a class happens to be full, you may be able to get in, anyway. If you sign up, you're definitely on the list, though. Go to http://www.learnapaloozachi.com and register, if you'd like to get signed up. Hope to see you there!

Here's the class list, with links for each class, so you can see what they're all about:

    Hey, all- it's 90% official that we'll be after-partying at Cork Lounge (1822 W Addison), just to the left of the Addison Brown Line stop, so feel free to stop by. There will be lots of folks in light-blue Learnapalooza shirts. Also, there were some changes to the schedule- a couple canceled, and a couple new classes (I'm teaching a second improv class, for example). Hope you can make it out!
