Youth Theatre Education Class

January 5, 2016 @ 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 3:45 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 22, 2016

- $250.00

 

This Beginning/Intermediate class is designed to develop creativity, inspire appreciation and understanding for the dramatic arts, and establish life long communication skills. It is for students already passionate about theatre to further refine their skills, and for new students curious about the performing arts in theatre. Acting is taught through weekly instruction in musical theater choreography, scene work based in Asian Tales and Folklore and working as a group on a short original play based on the story scenes we create in class through improvisation. This work facilitates correct use of the voice, body, and face to express character.  At the end of the last class, students will perform a short showcase for family and friends. Students will also perform a sample of their “Play in progress” at the Chinese New Year Festival in Nevada City on Sunday Feb. 21st.  Presented by the Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra and the Miners Foundry.
