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!
