6th Grade Drama
This course is a 6 week exploratory course. Students will learn basic theatre vocabulary, and skills in movement and vocalization.
7th Grade Drama
A One Semester Class in which students will build on skills learned in 6th grade. This is a beginning class and 6th grade drama is not required. Emphasis will be on ensemble building through improvisation and movement games. Students will continue to work on vocalization and will be introduced to musical theatre, including songs and dance. One evening performance is part of class grade.
8th/9th Grade Drama
A One Semester class in which students will continue to develop acting skills. This is a beginning class and earlier drama classes are not required. Movement and pantomime will be expanded upon. Improvisational games will strengthen ensemble work. Students will develop vocal skills in different styles of acting. Since students are able to take drama for a full year in both 8thand 9thgrades, those who take drama continuously will learn a broader scope of skills and gain more experience acting. Students will attend a professional play during the semester to gain an understanding of skills they are working on in class (see details under “Events”). One evening performance is part of the class grade.
9th graders may take Intermediate Drama if they have taken drama in 8th grade.
