CORE DIVISION Drama
The drama programs offered within our CORE division welcome students of any and all levels of skill and experience (no audition necessary).
A practical introduction to the art and craft of performance, intended for students with little or no previous experience or training. The course uses a range of acting exercises to teach critical thinking, active listening, specificity of action, intention of thought and team building. Students will engage in text analysis, collective creation, storytelling, physical and vocal exercises, and character development. This course is ideally suited for any students with a lack of interest for singing and dancing, or those who would like to strengthen their acting skills in a non-musical setting.
