Theater Dance & Acting
Class begins with warm-up exercises that include both physical and vocal components. Students learn improvisational skills through theater games and exercises geared to encourage students to explore various emotions and different ways to express them through pantomime, scene work, monologue work, and character study, all while having lots of fun! These activities increase focus while also expanding vocabulary and encouraging children to speak audibly and clearly.
The intermediate/advanced class takes the skills the student might already know and expands them to more advanced tricks. To be placed in the intermediate/advanced class a student should be able to do a standing back bend and be able to stand up from the back bend, front walk overs and round offs.
