During the first hour of class, we will explore improv, games, voice and movement work, and dance. We will also memorize and perform short scenes and monologues. Our goals are: to continue to build our skills and confidence on stage; to strengthen our group and our community; and to have FUN.
In the Writing section class, our second hour, we will be creating our Spring show together! We will learn about the specifics of writing a play - what to think about and include. We will also be using our own imagination and creativity to write a fabulous, original play to perform next year!
