Theater 1 | Grades 7-12
Description: Are you interested in exploring the world of acting? Do you need a class to fulfill your fine arts requirement? Or maybe you are simply looking for a fun elective class to take. Well, then Intro to Theater is the class for you! In this class you will learn about the basics of theater and acting. You will tap into your creative side by participating in fun theater activities, exciting acting improvisations, and creating original group skits. You will develop skills in vocal projection and clarity, the use of vocal and facial expressions, the use of body language and gestures, and proper staging techniques. You will also learn the basics of character analysis and how to develop a believable character. These skills will all be applied to scene work and monologues which will be rehearsed and performed in class. This unique class will increase self-confidence, develop creativity, build teamwork, and teach you the basic techniques of acting – all done in a fun, positive environment. Students should expect an average of two hours of weekly homework, and full, active class participation is required! “Theater” is a prerequisite for any level 2 or 3 class.
