Ensemble Acting and Theatre Games
Led by Katie Swider
Students will learn to act out scenes in a group in this online acting class. During live classes, students will work on guided ensemble scenes where virtual environments will help tell stories and encourage students to work together. Students will be challenged to be their silliest selves in theatre games and work collaboratively to create a scene with the whole class! Each student will need 3-5 feet of open space to move around freely. Google Classroom will be used for all course communication. Classes will be held on Zoom.
CAP will provide all supplies needed for this course.
