This full-year practicum is designed to provide participants with the basics of all aspects of the performing arts, with a hands on, project-based approach to learning. Participants declare a primary area of study (acting, dance, technical theatre, film/video, play/screen writing) and receive training in that discipline during set hours. To fulfill a portion of their seat time requirement, they will work in other disciplines as a means to enrich understanding of their chosen field, through training, projects and performances. This course is designed to meet the demands of students interested in performing arts classes who are unable to fit electives into their regular school hours. Through all of the disciplines explored, students will grow in self-confidence, public speaking, team work, language acquisition and decoding skills (text analysis, script writing and choreography), in addition to developing their artistry. Enrollment is open through the first quarter.
