Creative Dramatics: Once Upon a Time  
(preschool/early elementary)


 Calling all little performers who love to be in the spotlight!  We will sing, dance, and act in class each week!  We'll use our imaginations to make up stories, learn how to express our feelings and create characters, and we'll rehearse material from classic fairy tales.  Fun theater games, music, puppetry, crafts, and other creative activities will help students grow artistically while working as a team and having fun.  Students will also have the opportunity to perform with their class at the Forefront Arts Fall Showcase at the end of the semester.
