A fun-filled introduction to theater for the elementary age actor! Students use role-playing and basic creative drama exercises to bring scenes and stories to life. Working on self- expression, acting exercises, improvisation and using our imagination we will help the kids create characters and scenes. The class focuses on a wide range of creative activities involving speech, creative movement and theatre games to help the ever growing mind of the creative kid! A great opportunity to make new friends while developing self-confidence!
