Theatre in Second Grade

The Lower School theatre class enables students to develop performance skills through self-expression and play-acting. In this introductory drama course, students use movement and improvisation to create imaginary objects and worlds. In this framework of creativity and risk-taking, students understand that there are no “right” or “wrong” answers within the game or activity.

Students practice:

  • Performing in group improvisational games to develop cooperative skills and concentration.
  • Collaboration through mutual risk taking and understanding of constructive feedback and communication skills for productive interactions.
  • Using improvisation to portray such concepts as friendship, hunger, or seasons.
  • Practicing creative problem solving through the use of improvisation.
  • Engaging in elements of characterization through play-acting and improvisation games and activities.
  • Using non-verbal communication to express their needs, wants and character attributes through improvisation activities.
