Theatre at Jacksonville Heights
Led by Cobus Gomes
Students must be enrolled at Jacksonville Heights Elementary School to register for this course. In this theatre program, students will build and extend their knowledge of the basic concepts of theatre arts. They will use creative theatre techniques to build confidence and trust, stimulate imagination, and explore movement and role-play. Through theatre activities and scene work students will learn to gain trust in themselves as well as others in their groups.
In-person courses will follow the DCPS schedule for holidays and school closures.
This afterschool program is supported by the Kids Hope Alliance.
