I Got D.I.S. (Drama, Improv & Scene Study)
“I Got DIS!”
These fun-filled classes for pre-teen 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.
It's a whole new program!!
Now offering technique classes for the future semesters. The idea is to focus on one area of technique every month. The children will be introduced to the method the first week and have a possible guest teacher who specializes in that method teach during the second week. The third week, the children will prepare their scene or project, and on the fourth week, they will perform for each other.
Here is a list of monthly focus we will choose from:
Acting technique Audition Technique for On-Camera Comedy
Scene Study Cold Reading (Sight Reads) Props
Improvisation Commercial Acting Costuming
Body Movement Voice-Over Class Musicals
Accents Fight scene choreography Camera Knowledge
Basic Dance Choreography Slapstick Genre Study of Film
