Class Description

Drama helps people learn to communicate, think on their feet, present themselves well, better express emotions, build empathy, and develop talents. This course is for middle and high school students. I will teach the basics of theater (stage directions, diction, characters, framing, scene development, comedy, etc), focusing on the art of improvisation and the four rules of improvs, which are:

1) Show me; don’t tell me, 2) Yes, And, 3) Be believable, and 4) Play the moment/Be true to your character.

Students will learn scene development: how to start, develop, and end a scene. The class will be entirely hands on, with the students learning through developing scenes, playing drama games, and performing for their classmates.
