This week-long class is specifically designed for preschool & kindergarten Theatre Artists. Our Teaching Artists encourage learning through storytelling and creative play while fostering social, physical, emotional, and cognitive development. With minds, bodies, and voices engaged, Young Artists express themselves through story creation, music, creative movement, dramatic play, and art-making to enhance skills in theatre fundamentals, early literacy, communication, creative thinking, cooperation, active listening, and community building. On the last day of class, family & friends are invited to a sharing of creative drama exercises, original scenes, favorite songs, and artwork.
THEATRE LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
Developing self-expression through play, creative movement, and drama exploration
Engaging in guided group drama experiences
Exploring stories with creative drama strategies like pantomime, narration, and frozen image
In-Person Experience: this class will be held in-person at SteppingStone with all safety precautions in place.
