You will also develop stronger character development skills by means of analysis worksheets, theatre exercises, and group discussion. The first two weeks of each session will be lecture and theatre exercises based; you should bring a notebook to take notes as well as wear something comfortable to move in. The last four weeks of each session will entail more theatre exercises as well as the choreography routine; you should continue to dress comfortably but also bring a dance or character shoe for the choreography. This course focuses on ensemble building, lecture, and theatre activities for the first 6 weeks, and then choreography for the second 6 weeks.
