ATMTC Academy’s Elementary Programs are a wonderful introduction for students interested in musical theatre performance.
Elementary classes introduce students to age-appropriate vocabulary and skills in acting, singing, and dancing. Each class culminates in a sharing for family and friends where students have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning and growth. Classes are held once per week online for nine weeks.
Students will join a teaching artist in exploring a new story each class (or series of classes). They will do warm-up activities, read the story, and act it out as a class. Classes will also incorporate music and movement as possible.
Students will develop their ability to build character and tell stories through text, music, and movement. They will play theatre games and learn to collaborate through an online platform. Students will understand basic theatre terminology and will work together creating a story to perform for family and friends.
Journey with ATMTC through the process of acting: a professional teaching artist will guide participants using creative drama techniques with a focus on improvisation and characterization as well as storytelling through scripted or unscripted work.
