Theatre at Parkwood Heights
Led by Marielle Erskine
Students must be enrolled at Parkwood Heights Elementary School to register for this course. Students will be introduced to the basic concepts of theatre arts. They will use creative theatre techniques to build confidence and trust, stimulate imagination, movement and role-play. Through theatre games 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.
