Drama, 6th-12th grades - $25

This is an advanced, production class, and not my intro class, so it is only for students who have been in one of my plays before. While drama is an amazing way to help students become more confident and "come out of their shell", this particular class is too much for beginners and/or those who are super shy. 

 

This class will be rehearsing a play that will be performed at the end of the semester party! Skills we will be focusing on include stage movement, using props, showing emotion through facial and body expressions, and speaking in front of an audience.

 

**THERE WILL BE REHEARSALS OUTSIDE OF CLASS. For this next semester, we will practice during class and then have another rehearsal after lunch (12:30 to 1:30). This second rehearsal will be scheduled according to scenes, so not everyone has to stay every week. (If your student gets a bigger part, they might be staying every week - so please let me know at the beginning of the semester if this will be a problem) As we get closer to production, there will be at least 2 rehearsals that will be 3 to 4 hours in length as they practice in full costume with props, sound, and lighting changes. If we need props and costumes, I will always try to borrow items before making purchases to save everyone money and storage space.
