Drama with Mrs. B (for students entering Grades 1-5 in the fall)
Getting up in front of people and acting is not always easy, especially for children who are shy or uncertain of themselves. But doing it once can help them get past their stage fright. The more they act, the more confidence they will gain in themselves. They will see that acting is something they can conquer. The class will incorporate creative thinking and acting skills to help boost public speaking abilities as well as the fostering of new relationships. Students will work need to work together in order for our productions a success.
