Professional Development Workshops: Teacher/Staff Training
"Breathe and Find Your Voice": Through improvisational activities and exercises, educators and other professionals learn to relax, breathe more efficiently, feel safe in play and--depending on their interests--begin vocalizing or even work on a group theatrical song. This can be a powerful team building activity; "Sustainable Musical Theatre": The fundamentals of creating musical theater programs including choosing a show, licensing, auditions, choreography, singing, acting, directing, costumes, sets, sound/audio, and marketing. Appropriate for schools and communities.
Program/Residency Activity Descriptions: Schools/Communities
"Literacy through Song and Dance!" Students use their imaginations and the mediums of song and dance to learn new skills in literacy including letter recognition and vocabulary with the use of a chosen classroom book; "Music and Movement": students will sing both songs and tonal and rhythm patterns (including minor and major scales and odd rhythm patterns) and dance while playing and having serious fun! Music and movement are proven to help speech development, math skills, and coordination. We use egg shakers, rhythm sticks, scarves, and a parachute to accompany our songs and dances; "Musical Theatre Intensive": through improvisation games and exercises, students learn song structure and vocal technique. They also learn and use tableaus, choreograph and perform a current Broadway “show stopper.”
