Movers and Shakers

Fridays, 9:30-10:15 am, Sept 14-Nov 16, 2018 (10-wk session)

Go on a creative adventure each week with your child as you move your bodies and stretch your imaginations. Children will gain physical awareness and hone social skills as they explore the dynamics of movement and rhythm. The class is designed to give caregivers the opportunity to connect with their children in a joyful and playful environment and take home creative tools to incorporate into everyday life. A variety of music, imaginative props, and stories will be used to create a stimulating and fun creative movement/drama class.

Creative Drama: Mixed-Up Fairy Tales

Tuesdays, 3:30-5:00, Sept 18-Dec 4, 2018 (12-week session)

Have you ever wished you could re-write a fairy tale? In Mixed-Up Fairy Tales, students get to create their own fairy tale mash-up filled with their favorite characters. What might the big bad wolf and wicked witch have to say to each other? How did these wizards, witches and fairy godmothers get their powers in the first place?

Each week, students will play theater and improvisation games and explore vocal and movement exercises as they work towards creating an original fairy tale mash-up. Collaboration, careful observation, and creative thinking will be emphasized throughout the process as students gain theater technique and confidence. The session will culminate in a showcase of the original play for family and friends.
