Storytime theater class is a fun and engaging approach to help students bring to life stories and help develop their fundamental understanding of its elements. Students will work with other students with teacher's guidance to act out stories while studying character development and story structure.
Storytime theater is a great way for young students to be introduced to the concepts of acting without the stress of being in an official acting class. Both shy and outgoing students will benefit from this class as it helps shy students become more open to share and communicate with others, while helping more outgoing students to become more in control of their abilities.
Students will travel the world and explore stories from various cultures and re-enact them. From famous Greek Mythologies, to American folk tales, students will be engaged with different stories on a regular basis to be exposed to a wide range of people and backgrounds. Students will also make their own props in class to help bring to life the characters of the stories.
