PROGRAM

  • The Zoo: In this exercise kids embody various animals and different environments and dramatic situations their animal might encounter.
  • Puppetry: We’ll spend time making and bringing to life our own sock puppet companions.
  • Mythology: Kids will learn about major Greek gods and goddesses by learning and recreating their myths.
  • Clown School: Everyone has a clown inside. We’ll find the one inside each child.
  • Shakespeare’s greatest heroes and heroines.
  • Mask Work: Mask work has the ability to free anyone from their inhibitions, even little ones who have few to begin with.
  • Movement Theatre Exercises: Based on a series of movement techniques and exercises created by the master of movement Jacque Lecoq, our exercises are adapted for the younger set.

  • Dialogue: Children will learn to memorize and repeat dialogue for scene work.
  • Play Making: Throughout the week we will collaborate to create a short play.
  • Storytelling: The children will collaborate to weave a tale.
  • Sing Along.
  • Improv and Theatre Games: They will play a variety of theatre games that will not only sharpen acting skills, but mental capacity, coordination, focus and much more.
  • On-Camera: The children will perform dialogue, clown work, animal work or any number of the above exercises, for the camera so that we can introduce them to on-camera work but also to provide parents with something to watch years later, whether the kids grow up to be actors, civil servants or doctors.
