Welcome to the wonderful world of Theatre and Dance! I am excited to be working with our STAR students this year.
As an educator, I believe that every student has the potential to achieve greatness. The goal of this program is to help students tap into their creativity and explore different aspects of life. Students will do this through the use of creative drama techniques. Some of the techniques include improvisation, spatial awareness and role-playing. Various dance techniques and dance genres will also be explored. In order to step into someone else's shoes, one must first feel good in their own skin, so students in this program will also be involved in self-esteem and character building exercises. These will assist them in setting goals and gaining the confidence to become the best STAR they can be.
In the Spring, students will showcase their talents and skills in the Broadway Jr. Musical, Suessical, the Musical. Previously, students in this program have performed other Disney and Broadway Jr. Musicals such as: The Lion King, Annie, Peter Pan, and High School Musical. I look forward to seeing you at the performance in support of our STARS and all their hard work as they shine on stage!
