Hans Christian Anderson. Ages 6-9. 1:15-2:45pm
Hans Christian Anderson was a writer of plays, novels and poems but is MOST famous for his fairy tales. We will explore his many stories as well as an intro to acting and physical character exploration. Through active creative exercises and theatre games, students will learn how to create a character, understand this great writer’s stories, and use their voices and bodies to convey the dramatic and comedic stories. This program provides a safe, fun and supportive atmosphere where students will be encouraged to make bold and creative acting choices, while also developing new levels of personal confidence, finding their voice and ensemble skills while learning this great story. Our classes favor physical movement and active learning over traditional lectures. The richness of the lessons lies more in the doing and feeling than in the intellectualizing of material. We’ll bring it all together as we prepare for a presentation on Expo Night at Huck of one of Anderson’s selections.
