I Got D.I.S. (Drama, Improv & Scene Study)
“I Got DIS!”
These fun-filled classes for children and teens, provide a venue for young actors to express themselves through Drama, Improv & Scene Study/Song (DIS). Acting through drama and improv helps children to learn how to actively listen, communicate verbally and non-verbally, be open to ideas, respond quickly in the moment, use imagination, collaborate, effectively use emotions, be more engaging, be flexible to change, and be more aware of what’s going on around them. Although we will not be learning to sing in this semester program, children will be learning breathing techniques, pitch, tone, and vocal projection that will help them with vocals for stage performances.
This semester we will be working on Murder Mysteries and Escape Rooms!

STUDIO RULES: Mask should be worn upon entering and upon leaving venue during transition with other classes. A mask will be required to wear during class.
For a proactive safety approach, I request that after your child joins the class, should your child have contact with anyone who has traveled off island or who has had recent exposure to COVID, he/she does not attend class for 2 weeks. No student should be on the theater stage unless enrolled in that particular class. With the exception of water, no food or drinks are allowed in the theater. Parents should not leave young students unattended in building before or after class. Chewing gum is never allowed in the theater. Always treat your teacher and fellow classmates with respect.
