Sing & Dance-a-Story

Image for class 'Sing & Dance-a-Story'
Utilizing popular song from stage and screen, students will learn to “sing a story” by exploring the various voices that can be produced by using appropriate vocal techniques. Students will connect voice to posture, gesture, and full-body movement through improvisation to create vivid characters. They will “dance a story” by learning to use creative movement to bring a story to life. Not all actors need to dance, but learning how to use a creative and flexible range of movement will help young actors feel more confident on stage, develop physically interesting characters, and add another skill to their actor toolbox. A final demonstration for family and friends will take place on the last day of class
