Kids love to dream up the wildest things and this class gives them the space, freedom and guidance to create while strengthening listening and communications skills. In this class students will play theatre and improvisation games that will hone and stretch their ability to imagine, move and create. They will create characters they dream up themselves, build stories around these characters and then act them out. They'll also explore what happens when their character interacts with another child’s character, learning the art of collaboration and ensemble. This class will give children in this age group the confidence to not only create, but share their creations with the world. At the end of the course there will be an open rehearsal and a final presentation of the original play devised by the class. Classes held in Williamsburg, Brooklyn Heights.
