In our very own “Superhero Academy,” students use their bodies, voices, minds, and imaginations to save the day as they create their own superhero characters. The class uses dramatic play, visual arts, and movement to teach story structure and original character building. There is no stopping them as they embark on this great superhero adventure! An informal sharing of work will be performed for families during the final class. Creative Drama: Unicorn & Dragon Tales: Step into a world of adventure to meet different dragons and unicorns while exploring new stories each week such as (but not limited to) Dragons Love Tacos, Puff the Magic Dragon, and How to Catch a Unicorn. In this creative drama class, students bring these different stories to life using their actor’s tools of body, voice, mind, and imagination. Students learn to improvise while gaining an understanding of character and environment and developing personal confidence. An informal sharing of work will be performed for families during the final class. Drama & Music: Creative drama and music are integrated in this fusion class. Students create their own stories, songs, and dances based on popular children’s tales. Using stories with classic themes and lessons, students make connections between imaginative worlds and their own life experiences. Using simple props and costumes, they create characters and bring their stories to life. Children are introduced to pattern and rhythm through beginner music lessons, instrument play, and creative movement to music. These classes encourage creative expression and promote confidence and self-esteem. An informal sharing of work will be performed for families during the final class.
