Be a part of the latest and greatest digital sensation that is Rekindle’s brand new online course, for kids, older kids!

In this class series, your child will collaborate with partners to create their very own story! Students will learn the fundamentals of drama and be able to creatively express the characters and events in their tale. Finally, your child will stage and present their story in an online sharing.

Students will be challenged to engage in ensemble games, participate in reflective discussions, and express themselves using their imagination, body, and voice.

In This Class Your Child Will Learn:

  • The Drama VIBES: voice, imagination, body, ensemble, and story.
  • How to imagine and create their own stories.
  • How to shape and move their bodies to express the emotions and actions of their character.
  • How to develop and express narration and dialogue using their voice.
  • How to work together as an ensemble to stage and present their story. 
  • Note to guardians: This is an online class, so the instructor can’t physically supervise the students. So we ask that you please stay in the room with your youngster while they are attending the class.
