ASL and Music Workshops

Hosted by SOUND OFF: A Deaf Theatre Festival

What is ASL song interpretation?

Find out in this series of workshops led by Juan Jaramillo, Robert Bhola and Patti Trofimenkoff of the ASL music company, Dancing Hands. ASL song interpretation adds accessibility to American Sign Language by delivering music and lyrics with grace and fluency. Participants will learn the skills to analyze songs and reinterpret the meaning of lyrics and how to include ASL classifiers to enhance performances for stage or online.

Two editions of this workshop will be offered: Basic ASL Song Interpretation and Advanced ASL Song Interpretation.

Basic ASL Song Interpretation Date: Saturday, April 3rd, 2021 - 9 PM MST / 11 AM EST - ONLINE

Advanced ASL Song Interpretation Date: Sunday, April 4th, 2021 - 9 AM MST / 11 AM EST - ONLINE
