Grades: 4-6

Explore Performance

Immerse yourself in a Devised Theatre rehearsal process as you create, stage, and perform an original short play or musical! Inspired by the class theme, and under the guidance of your Director, work with your class to develop the show’s setting, characters, dialogue, and staging. While you’re creating the show, study two theatrical skill-sets and apply the skills you’ve learned to the final performance. Throughout this process-driven class, engage in rehearsal practices, and theatre games/activities to sharpen your foundational performance skills. On the final day of class, perform your original work for family & friends!

 

THEATRE LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
  • Integrating multiple performance styles & theatre concepts
  • Rich collaboration – discussing & contributing ideas to enhance performance
  • Director’s notes – observation, suggestion, support, and feedback to introduce and refine performance concepts
  • Providing opportunity for intentional group reflection on artistic work
SKILL-BASED LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
  • Learning skill-specific vocabulary & concepts at an age-appropriate level
  • Understanding concepts though warm-ups, games, exercises, projects, and exploration
  • Scaffolding & building-upon concepts to achieve mastery
