This class is a dance/ movement class to help students build confidence in movement and learn how actors can use their bodies to create characters and tell stories. Young performers will build comfort and confidence in learning to use their bodies as acting tools. Acting requires more than words. Actors and dancers use their bodies and facial expressions to inform the audience of what kind of personality they are, and what they are feeling and thinking. Just simply how a character stands or how they walk can tell us an awful lot about them. (A giant would move very differently than a mouse, for example.) In this class, students will use music and movement exercises, and choreography to get in tune with their bodies creatively, and explore how body language, posture, gesture and facial expression can be used as effectively as a costume in order to create a character. They will also use masks and work with props.
