Lower school co-curriculars are an integral part of our student life. Students participate in a well-rounded offering of Fine and Performing Arts, Foreign Language, and STEM classes. Here is a glimpse of recent happenings in our Drama and Dance classes.
In Drama, the students have been exploring their Actors Toolbox and acting techniques used in performance. Here are some pictures showing our exploration with "Tableau" - A frozen picture where actors create a character or scene without speaking or moving. Grade 3 created - Tableau's utilizing the Fairytales they are studying in their classrooms and the concept of Beginning, Middle & End.
In dance class this week, third graders are working on their first choreography project. They are using locomotor and non-locomotor movements to challenge their creativity while putting together a short dance phrase. They are having fun trying to think outside the box and communicate through the language of dance! ~ Melissa Fagan, Lower School Director
