Open to all students, including those who have previously taken Basic Acting in 9th grade.
In this interdisciplinary class, students examine the greater world through performance. They continue to build acting techniques and explore all aspects of performance, including dance, music, and theatre. Students learn the basics, such as how to analyze a script and dig deeper into character objectives and motivation. The course also provides a lens to reflect on our society and the role performance plays in interpreting and processing deeper meaning. In addition to working with different types of monologues and scenes, students write and create their own performance pieces that explore their individual passions. They perform regularly for the class and finish the year with a group performance in front of a small audience.
