STUDENTS “ACTING IT UP” AT WHEATON DRAMA

1st Grade Through 8th Grade Classes

A six week workshop designed to strengthen the acting “muscle”. Through acting games and exercises, each week students will work on a different aspect of acting technique such as movement, voice, characterization, pantomime, plus others. Teamwork, focus and listening are added benefits in this acting workshop. Students will also work on a short 15 min skit to apply the skills learned and will perform at the end of the last class. Session will be posted throughout the year as they become open for registration (roughly a month before the class starts).

All sessions will be on Tuesday afternoons at these times:

Grades 1 – 4:  4:00 p.m. until 4:55 p.m.

Deadline extended to 3/10: Teach a July workshop

Tuesday, February 13th, 2018

Wheaton Drama seeks teachers for our 2018 Summer Workshop, a weeklong experience in which students learn about theatre, dance and music.

Students will spend time with each teacher (dance and theatre), learning about each performance process and developing lifelong skills. We stress process over product, but parents will see what their children have been working on during a showcase performance at week’s end.

The Wheaton Drama Summer Workshop provides comprehensive theatre instruction for children in grades 1–5 during Week One and in middle school (grades 6–8) and high school students during Week Two.

Teachers will be hired in two areas:
1. Theatre
2. Dance

Hours and dates:
Elementary Week One (July 9–14) 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., performances on Saturday, July 14.
Middle and High School Week Two (July 16–21) 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., performance on Saturday, July 21.

Pay:
Each teacher will be paid $500 per session.

Please fill in and submit the WDI_2018 Summer Workshop teacher application form by March 10, 2018, to wdieducation@wheatondrama.org.

If you have any questions please contact Elyse Willis, Wheaton Drama Education Governor, at wdieducation@wheatondrama.org.
