Full-Year Curriculum Overview:
Drama Kids classes are built to allow children to grow from class to class. Curriculum is developmental and progressive!
Weeks 1-9: Basic Acting Skills: acting tools body, voice, & imagination, building trust, collaboration (working together as an ensemble), speaking skills, spatial awareness, and much more.
Weeks 10-19: Performance Skills: blocking, building characterization, improvisation, reacting, developing expression & stage projection.
Weeks 20-29: Collaborative activities that include group scenes, group improvisations, and more. Preparing students for their Spring Presentation rehearsals.
Week 30-Last day of Class: Rehearsals for Spring Presentation. Although we are not a performance-focused program, during the last module, our students experience the rehearsal process & line memorization techniques.
Does my child have to enroll for the full year and why?
Drama Kids is a skills-based program focusing on building our student’s confidence through interactive and developmental drama activities. While it is not required that your child commit to the full year and students can join a skills class at any time throughout the year, it is strongly suggested that they attend as many classes as they can throughout the year! This is because our community classes perform a Spring Presentation in May and in order to give their best and be fully prepared, students need to build the necessary skills that can only be learned in the classes leading up to the rehearsals. Registration will close for these classes on March 3rd, 2023.
