Drama class allows students to discover who they are and what their potential might be. It asks them to build self-confidence and shine on stage. Drama class encourages active bodies, sharp minds, and cultivates empathy. Drama 9 focuses on the fundamentals of movement and story-telling while also introducing some improvisation. In Drama 10 we work on specific skills individually. Students will focus unit-by-unit on movement, voice and speech, technical theatre, theatre history, improvisation, and acting. When students get to the combined Drama 20/30 class, they are expected to bring what they focused on in Drama 10 into a more contextual arena. Emphasis is given to script work, character development, and creating a dramatic experience from a simple idea into a full performance.

It is often the case the Drama 20/30 students will work to create a performance for Remembrance Day or some kind of public presentation.

Performing Arts class gives students performance opportunities on a community level. This class works to produce a Boadway-style musical and a play every year which is presented to the public. Through tackling these large shows, students don't just learn acting, singing, and dance skills, they are subject to an array of professional skills such as adhering to a schedule, the value of team effot, problem-solving, etc.

In Technical Theatre, students gain knowledge and experience of working on a full-scale theatrical performance: lights, sound, set design, costume creation, properties, scheduling, etc. by working on that semester's show!

In my English 10-2 class, we will be exploring within ourselves and branching out to see what ways English Language Arts has touched the different facets of our individual lives. We will be working with music and lyrics, we will get an indegnous perspective on English, we will explore film and media, relate to another person's life experience through language, and discover how English has progressed and changed throughout the ages.

This semester, we are very excited to be working on Disney's The Little Mermaid!

Almost identical to the classic Disney movie with a little bit more of a feminist twist, meet Ariel, Sebastian, Flounder, Scuttle, King Triton, Ursula, and Prince Eric in what I'm sure will be a breathtaking excursion "Under The Sea"!

 

I am so excited for another awesome year at Bert Church!

I want my students to know that I am always 100% available to them should they ever need me and my office door is always open. Come on down for a chat, I'm always up for it!
