Grade 7 -- Dramatic and Performing Arts
The Dramatic and Performing Arts program is designed to acquaint students with the performing arts through dramatic interpretation of literature. Students will develop self-confidence, work with others cohesively, use imagination to express thought and feeling, obtain increased awareness of the world around them, and improve their concentration skills. Basic acting skills such as improvisation, pantomime, characterization, preparing a role and stage movements will be introduced. Students will identify elements in a script and recognize those elements of a script related to characterization. Class activities will include informal acting experiences and classroom presentations.
