On the shores of Illyria, the adventure never ends and the music always plays on. Shipwrecks, mistaken identities, cowardly knights, fools, fops, and fun abound for young artists as they use mime, pantomime, dance, slapstick, and acrobatics to explore one of the Bard’s most extravagant and hilarious tales. Develop early language arts skills in story comprehension and interpretation through kinesthetic learning while building confidence, making friends, and setting sail with your imagination.

Acting isn’t only about pretending to be someone else, or wearing awesome costumes. Though that’s fun too! Acting can be a path of self-discovery and creative empowerment. Get to know your body and yourself better while developing confidence, artistic process and community in an encouraging, high-energy environment. Using theater games, movement exercises and acrobatics as a launching board, Synetic Middle School Acting and Movement Technique introduces students to the fundamentals of contemporary acting style with an emphasis on creating the physical life of a character. Students will develop a process for transforming dramatic literature into realistic human behavior for the stage, explore presence, and gain fundamental stage acting technique.
