Jazz On The Move

Presented by Nashville’s top jazz artists and educators of the Nashville Jazz Workshop, this program offers world-class music and opportunities to learn more about the genre and its iconic artists. Each performance is led by an individual jazz artist intimately familiar with the jazz great being profiled with an outstanding group of supporting musicians. Groups may choose which artist is profiled through story and song, including Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington or Ella Fitzgerald.

Whose Teambuilding is it Anyway

Improv actor-teachers will create customized programs on any topic including the power of “yes, and,” active listening, public speaking, presentations, team building, sales training, ice breakers, brainstorming, group mind, customer service and more. These sessions are high-energy and filled with instantly usable information with the goal that every team member walks out the door with stronger relationships and new skills.

Co-Write a Classic

Groups will work alongside one of Nashville’s notable songwriters in this interactive co-writing program. Groups will compose original lyrics of their own and end the session with a performance of the new tune on the iconic Franklin Theatre stage.

Franklin Cinema in Action

Groups will work with a professional dance or music instructor to learn a dance or song from movies like “La La Land,” “Grease,” or “Singin’ in the Rain” as well as watch the movie on the big screen.
