SALT LAKE CITY — Music and theater students from Salt Lake Arts Academy got a visit from the popular Blue Man Group on Wednesday.

Group members Jesse Nolan, Brian Tavener and Anthony Riscica worked with students on nonverbal acting and percussion-based music exercises on.

The workshop included learning about the personality of the “blue man” – how music informs his response and how his actions inform the music.

The group also shared video clips to give context for students not familiar with the show.
