#402 Improv and Circus Theater for Kids (Ages 8-12)

Instructor: Alexandra Moore

Mondays 3:30PM – 4:30PM June 11 – July 30 (8 weeks) Rehearsal Hall

The world is our stage and in it we move like characters in a play! We talk, laugh and create in every breath we take without always knowing what comes next. In this class we will learn to play with all the possibilities of ourselves and beyond, that’s the fun of theater! Using our bodies, hearts and minds, in this class, we can create scenes, monologues and more, learning to go with the flow, take control and let it go in a fun, easy, light-hearted and even meaningful way. During our class time we will be playing fun theater games, dabbling in the circus arts and learning some of the basic skills it takes to put ourselves out there and perform.

Tuition: $120.00
