Programs

Theater

Dates: 7/11 - 7/15
Times: 9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Ages: 11-14

What makes theatre so powerful is that it teaches us to discover how we feel while giving us the courage to express ourselves. Throughout this class, our main goals will be building self-awareness, cultivating self-confidence, and exploring our inner creativity. Students will learn teamwork through theatre games, acting exercises, and improvisation. A large portion of each day will be spent on the creation of a short, original performance piece. There, students will learn how to create, stage, and work together to put on a production for family and friends at the end of the week. It is our hope that each child will leave the class with a newfound belief that there are no limits on our own creativity.
