We’re excited to begin a new session of Saturday drama classes on January 20! All classes run for eight weeks at $100 each (for the full eight weeks).
Stage Play: Scandinavian Stories
Saturdays, 9:30 – 10:30 am, Ages 5 – 8
From Hans Christian Andersen to modern tales from the “Frozen” north, the countries of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark have a rich history of folk tales, fairy tales, and fables. Drama games and scenes based on these tales will be used to teach the basics of theatrical story telling, character development, voice, and movement. Older and returning students will be challenged to further develop roles and begin script analysis. The term ends with a showcase performance” for family and friends.
Stage Performance Skills: Movement and Physical Choices
Saturdays, 10:40 – 11:40 am, Ages 9 – 14
The physical choices that actors make help to create interesting characters! In addition to the development of physical choices for characters in scenes, guests teachers will introduce musical theater choreography and stage combat. Prior acting experience is recommended but not required. The term ends with a showcase performance for family and friends.
Improv in Performance
Saturdays, 11:50 am – 12:50 pm, Ages 10 – 16
Get a basic understanding of improvisational theater concepts such as story building, environmental awareness, saying “yes,” and making and accepting dramatic offers. The class will be introduced to short-form improv designed to build teamwork and reinforce basic concepts. Returning students will be challenged to build their skills and develop longer scenes. The terms ends with a performance, and other performance opportunities may be added.
