The Judge Judies: LAAF’s Only Non-Televised Daytime Talk Show

Whether they’re talking about the do’s and don’ts of collegiate a cappella or having a tangential conversation about Schitts Creek, this class will help you gather some perspective on styling your group for your sound, branding 101, and general music knowledge.

Diversity, Dance Floors, and Decolonization
We’ve all been to a party where you walk in and realize you don’t know anyone. Your heart starts racing and your hands get clammy as you make your way to the bar or snack table for some refuge. Can you imagine how different that party would have been if someone had asked you to dance? In this class, you will be introduced to strategies that will help you to support all of the different identities in your group. We will consider our own identity markers and language choices to help set a foundation for diverse and inclusive group spaces. Attendees will leave the class with a greater understanding of the relationship between diversity & inclusion in the a cappella space, and how this foundation can build more rewarding experiences for musical success and personal growth.
