Recreational Classes

This series of weekly classes meets after school in your school building, your place of worship, or your community center. Each class begins with a physical and vocal warm-up, continues with games and acting exercises focusing on a particular theatre concept, includes space for reflection, and ends with a unifying closing activity. Classes are cumulative, designed to build on the knowledge and skills introduced in previous classes. The full session of classes may culminate in a “Sharing” for family and friends.
