Ancient History Improv with Cy 12:30-1:30pm PST

THIS CLASS IS ALMOST FULL

$65* a month per student ages 9+

Each week we will learn about a new event or person in History. Lessons will be taught in collaboration with the students and fun facts they bring in each week.  We then bring in a theatrical spin to what we’ve learned and act out these historical figures and moments with improvisation games and character exploration living it on our feet and sometime rewriting history in the process.  Our students need no previous experience in theatre or history to enjoy this program.  We take all levels.  It should be noted that history does have some mature content and while we will be very sensitive to this, our suggested age range for the class should be taken into consideration.  Please let us know if you have questions, concerns or need to discuss.  

June:  King Djoser, Hatshepsut, The First Olympics, Sappho of Lesbos

July:  Sushruta, the Temple of Artemis, rituals of ancient Egypt, Aspasia and Pericles

Homework:  Each week students are asked to bring in five fun facts about each subject assigned.

Aesop’s Fables with Cy 1:45-2:45pm PST

THIS CLASS IS ALMOST FULL

$65* a month per student ages 7-10

Aesop was an oral storyteller believed to live in ancient Greece.  Originally told for adults addressing religious, social and political themes it was later during the Renaissance (and onwards) that his stories were then used as ethical guides in child education. Each week we will learn, discuss and explore these Fables THEN using fun active theatre exercises PHYSICALLY explore these great stories, characters and themes. 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.
