CREATIVE KIDS Entering Grade K –2
Children will be introduced to theatre through creative play. Exercises and games will focus on acting through story telling, creating a character, expressing a feeling, music, and movement.  A craft and story will often be included. By the end of the class, students should be using their bodies and voices to start to create characters. Though the emphasis of the class will be on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see students present scenes.
