Drama I

Drama 1 is an introductory class to the world of theatre.  In this class, beginning Drama students will start out learning how to just stand in front of a group of people and feel comfortable.  After the scariness of that wears off, they begin learning about the basic vocabulary of theatre, stage directions, theatre etiquette, audience etiquette, the skills of improvisation, and introduction to theatre history.  This is a performance-based class, so students are expected to perform in short scenes (1-3 minutes) for which they select a scene from a theatre scene book, memorize, and rehearse it.  After they perform for their classmates, they receive constructive criticism from their peers and the teacher in order to further develop their acting skills. Students leave Drama 1 with new levels of confidence, improved poise, the ability to project their voice and express themselves through body language.  For many, after their first year of Drama, they feel that they have found a home in the chaos of high school; a place where they can truly be themselves, feel accepted by their peers, and and truly relax while also challenging themselves to reach new heights in their socialization skills.
