Rising Grades 1-3 – Stories to Stage

Extended Day – 9:00AM-3:00PM – $250 per session

This summer, your child will get to explore storytelling, characters, team work, empathy, and creativity as they put together a one of a kind performance fashioned around an exciting theme! In class, we play age-appropriate theatre games, use our bodies to create animals and other characters, hear stories and act them out.  All of our activities are designed to build on their active imaginations while guiding them towards an understanding of how to portray characters in a story. A short performance will be presented on the last day.
