ABOUT SOTA: This session our students will focus on the skill of STORYTELLING. Storytelling uses the child’s imagination in coordination with our directors vision, to create a memorable story line and concept for the production. This skill enables children outside of the theater when it comes to reading, comprehension, writing and imaginative play. Theatre, as a synthesis of all the arts, is a particularly powerful medium of communication.  A theatre production engages students in learning through all intelligences.  Communication is holistic, and students are learning from a variety of stimuli simultaneously.  Thus is learning, understanding, and retention made potent.

STORYTELLING will be the focus of study as the children present “THE JUNGLE BOOK” by Rudyard Kippling. At Legacy, when we teach our students, we want our parents & community to see the result of their hard work and exactly where your dollars go. We want you to know what we teach, how we teach and we want you to stand in awe as your child comes alive on stage in front of hundreds of people discovering talents they may have never thought they had. As a former public school teacher, I know the value of giving students the ability to showcase a final product and therefore, this Spring, our young actors will show you what they have learned and how far their little imaginations take them as we present “THE JUNGLE BOOK”.

WHEN: SOTA 1 classes meet on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm. (Parents now have the option of picking one of two class dates) Classes start on Tuesday, March 25 and Wednesday, March 26.

ABOUT SOTA: This session our students will focus on the skill of IMPROVISATION. Improvisational theatre is a fantastic tool in the drama classroom and one many teachers use. It helps students learn to react and respond to unexpected situations, and builds confidence and creative abilities. Improvisation is well-known as comedy and entertainment, but during the past decade it has grown as a method of teaching and learning as well, says Robert Kulhan, adjunct professor of business administration at Duke’s Fuqua School of Business. Improv enthusiasts rave about its educational value. Not only does it hone communication and public speaking skills, it also stimulates fast thinking and engagement with ideas. On a deeper level, improv chips away at mental barriers that block creative thinking — that internal editor who crosses out every word before it appears on a page — and rewards spontaneous, intuitive responses. Because improv depends on the group providing categorical support for every answer, participants also grow in confidence and feel more connected to others.  

IMPROVISATION and COMEDY will be the focus of study as the children present their very own “WHOSE LINE?” an evening devoted to improv and comedy as our students demonstrate all they have learned inter classes.  At Legacy, when we teach our students, we want our parents & community to see the result of their hard work and exactly where your dollars go. We want you to know what we teach, how we teach and we want you to stand in awe as your child comes alive on stage in front of hundreds of people discovering talents they may have never thought they had. This Fall, our young actors will show you what they have learned and how far their little imaginations take them as we present “WHOSE LINE? For Teens!".
