Class Experience

Students will learn simple improvisation skills as well as some replicable steps to character development.  They will be introduced to how actors use their bodies and voices and will learn some basic ensemble and storytelling skills.
Students should bring a character costume--this could be anything that they like. It can be a favorite movie or book character or a character of their own making. Costumes can be made from things around the house--fancy clothes, parents' clothes, hats or scarves, blankets, boxes, etc. If a student plans to wear a costume that covers the face, they should not wear to class but wait and put on after introductions (and they should be able to see, speak and move safely when wearing it).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners may be physically active in this class.  Please be sure they have a safe environment with room to move around, and that they are able to move safely in their costumes.  Learners are encouraged to bring a water bottle to class, as we will be using our bodies and voices.  If you feel your learner may require off screen supervision in order to stay safe in an active class, please have an adult close at hand for the duration of the class.
