Grades: 7-12

TEEN PROGRAMS

Do you crave connection with creative and artistic people, like yourself? Are you interested in the Performing Arts and eager to learn all you can about the craft? Whether you’ve got experience or not – we’ve got a class for you! SteppingStone’s Teen Workshops feature process-driven learning, in a specific theatrical skill set, with classes structured to create strong ensembles and promote a supportive and fun classroom community. Join your peers in an inclusive, safe, and creative learning environment where you will feel comfortable expressing yourself and growing as an Artist. Our Teaching Artists structure classes to minimize competition or comparison. Instead, we challenge everyone to put in the work, stretch outside their comfort zones, and be open-minded in learning new techniques. With this approach, we create strong theatre foundations, a hunger & drive for artistic development, and a network of peers & mentors to help support you in your theatre journey.

 

THEATRE LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
  • Exploring a variety of theatre games & exercises intended to target & refine theatre skill-sets
  • Rich collaboration – contributing, discussing, & integrating ideas into an ensemble-driven Showcase of Work
  • Using research, critical analysis, and cultural context to develop and enhance Showcase
  • Director’s notes – observation, suggestion, support, & feedback to introduce and refine performance concepts
  • Sharing in leadership responsibilities throughout the class
  • Intentional time dedicated to group-reflection and self-reflection on artistic work
