YOUTH CLASSES - WHAT TO EXPECT - THE FIVE E's
Expect a challenge - Expect growth - Expect knowledge - Expect friends - and most importantly...Expect FUN!
The Challenges: New River Stage believes in loving and accepting everyone for who they are and where they are in terms of skill-set and general acting knowledge. What comes easily to one student may not come easily for another - and that is OK! While we appreciate the different levels of all students, it is also our job to make sure that no one stays complacent. Students will be expected to study their lines, remember blocking instruction and practice at home the lessons learned in class. We strive to challenge all students in a healthy and fun environment to ensure that they learn and become the best that they can be!
The Growth: Every year we are amazed at the variety of acting skills portrayed by the students in our classes. We have several students that return each season, but also enjoy many new faces! There are no standards of growth and we certainly don’t compare one student to the next. Our goal is to see significant growth in every student from week one to the final performance. Everyone grows in different directions and develops individualized skills. We are here to help foster that growth in the most effective way possible.
The Knowledge: Once we familiarize ourselves with each another and the play, we will then be able to break down the class into more specific lessons. Students will learn blocking, proper breathing techniques, line memorization skills, stage basics, costume design, character motivation and how to develop character nuances. Time permitting, each class will have a different lesson focused on a variety of theatre subjects.
The Friends: The week of class will be dedicated to getting to know each other. It is imperative that everyone in class knows and respects one another. The only way a theatre class/cast, (an ensemble), can function, is to work well together. In the end, not only will we have produced a quality performance, but we will have produced long-lasting friendships.
The Fun: Games, games, games! We LOVE playing games! However, these aren’t just any ordinary games, these are knowledge-based games designed to teach and develop skills.......all the while being, you guessed it, fun! The games aren’t the only fun aspect of our class. Our students pride themselves in learning new things! They find fun in confronting a challenge and conquering it!
