pre-Creative Movement 1/29

Hi all you movers and shakers! To start things off on the right foot for Creative Movement tomorrow at 10 am, we'll be exploring what I like to call Storydancing. Here's what you can expect:

Introductions: In a circle, we'll take turns introducing ourselves and demonstrating a personal dance move to help us remember each other better.

The Story: We'll be reading Caps For Sale: A Tale of a Peddler, Some Monkeys, and Their Monkey Business all together. Then we'll discuss the different kinds of motion occurring in the story and the ways movements of the body can convey different messages.

Let's Get Movin': To test out our new ideas about movement, we'll put them in motion to songs of various tones and tempos.

Monkey See, Monkey Do: In this game, one person demonstrates a movement and everyone mimics what that person does. We'll take turns being the Monkey.

Look forward to seeing you!

pre-Theater 1/29

Greetings on this sunny Friday afternoon! Tomorrow morning marks the first day of GCK Winter classes and I, for one, am so excited. Theater starts at 9 am, where we will be doing a little Introducing, learning about both our classmates and some theater basics. The class will be structured something like this:

Introductions: In a circle, we'll take turns introducing ourselves and sharing some special piece of information to help us remember each other better.

Characters: We'll talk about our favorite characters (cartoons, animals, people) and spend some time imitating them - we'll be acting already!

Hand Expressions: With a couple of fun songs, we'll learn how our hands can be characters all on their own.

Made for the Stage: We'll introduce the stage, talk about how and why it is used, and everyone can practice clapping and bowing.

Let's Write a Play! Finally, we'll brainstorm some ideas for characters in a play that we will continue to develop week by week.

See you all tomorrow!
