Accelerating Imaginations: An Intro to Acting
Drama Detective: An Intro to Dramaturgy
Intro to Musical Theatre Dance
We take a high-speed trip through the world of acting. This workshop includes theatre games to get kids' bodies revved up and creative wheels turning!
Our theatre games and activities help students warm up four tools that actors use on stage in order to be safe and perform their best: voice, body, concentration, and creativity.
We put on our detective hats and explore the world of “dramaturgy,” or the study of theatre, and students develop their sleuthing skills to observe, ask questions, and interpret works of art.
Through games and activities, we introduce the students to the concept of Dramaturgy as a tool and a vocation. Students practice using tools that dramaturgs use in their jobs: careful observation, asking critical questions and seeking out the answers, interpreting the artists meaning of a piece and sharing that interpretation with collaborators.
Get those bodies pumped and those jazz fingers ready to delve into storytelling through choreographed movement!
We explore the foundation of dance, basic steps, and learn a dance combo that demonstrates the
importance of body movement in dramatic form.
