Scripting for Performance – Making things “listen” with a script
You wish you could make that full perm particle listen for a chat command…that you could change the color of an object during your dance, that you could rotate your movers, your props, with a single command.  That’s exactly what we’ll be doing during this workshop!  Every attendee will receive a full perm “listener” script, where you set the channel, the command, and what you want it to do.  Do you have to know how to write scripts?  No!  We’ll go over how you can take an existing full perm rotation script, and change it to a rotation script that listens to your commands.  We’ll also be converting a full perm particle script, changing it so it activates on command!  With this workshop we open the doorway to scripting for performance and future workshops!

Tues May 29th – 5 pm slt

An easy reference to dance resource pages

As a seasoned and passionate dancer in SL, I freely share and support others in their own dance journeys.  My beliefs:  question everything, learn from everything, take from it what you will and do it your own way.  Have many teachers, no one is a master, no one knows “THE WAY”.  I teach based on what I know – my own foundation, what I have learned, my own ways – but they are not the only ways.  Enjoy the ride, speak from the soul and create art with your dance.  We are all always learning, always growing.  Release the music from within…your way.  ~ Eva
