We'll act out familiar stories and make up new versions, using our bodies and voices to create different characters. Each week we'll use improv activities to stretch our imaginations and strengthen our observation skills, play games that foster teamwork and trust--all important skills for actors. We'll explore drama and comedy and how to covey them, and we'll laugh a lot along the way. There will be a performance for friends and families at the last class!
