Are you nervous to speak in front of others?
Do you want to enhance your public speaking skills for school or future careers?
Develop public speaking in a supportive space through improvisation!
Students with little to no acting experience are encouraged to participate! During this virtual course, we will play a variety of theater games designed to spark creativity and a sense of play while also developing invaluable, interdisciplinary skills, including team building, communication, and leadership skills. We will then put these skills into practice through in-class presentations and feedback sessions.
Be thoughtful and silly! Think outside the box! Learn from one another! Take risks & Have fun!
Wednesdays, 5:00pm - 6:30pm, January 13, 20, 27; February 3, 10 (Make-up Day: February 24)
Students in grades 6-8
Ariela Nazar-Rosen graduated cum laude from Wellesley College with a degree in English. She is also a proud alumna of Teen Leadership Rockland! Ariela previously taught English to high-school-aged immigrant and refugee youth for three years through the Phillips Brooks House Association at Harvard University and later worked in a high-school level Sheltered English Immersion Academy with City Year Boston. She has been able to combine her passions for education and acting by teaching theater to elementary-school students through the New York Public School System. Her positivity and enthusiasm encourage a sense of confidence and competence in young people, and she believes that each student has a unique, meaningful voice that should be heard.
$100 Financial assistance is available for those with demonstrated need.
