Over the summer, Not Just Dance held a one week camp for our youngest students. This was a test drive for our Future STaRS theatre program. Young actors learned skills for performing while working on a show that was specifically written for them. In addition, they created props, costumes and set decoration items for their show. Follow this link to see our young actors in action!
Twisted Tales is our year long program specifically designed for our youngest Future STaRS! The program consists of theatre games, movement and performance etiquette provided in a safe and nurturing environment, employing positive feedback, which allows each child to learn and have fun! In addition, students will work, throughout the year, on their own performance, using a script specifically written by our Not Just Dance staff for this class. Each year, the performance will change. But, in each case, the script will either be based on one (or a mash up of two or more) stories being done by Not Just Dance students that year. So for example, what would happen if Alice (from Alice in Wonderland) went to Munchkinland (from Wizard of Oz). In this class, children will be encouraged to act silly and express themselves while learning how to respect others, grow their confidence, use and develop their imagination and increase their confidence.
Twisted Tales – 2018-2019
Our Monday night Future STaRS class will be working on a script from our Twisted Tales series. In the Wizard of Madagascar, Dorothy ends up in Madagascar and Toto is lost! She searches for Toto and runs into Marty, Alex and Melaman. Gloria, the good witch of the North, suggests that Dorothy go see Julian, The Wizard. Maurice and the Fossa’s have other plans and attempt to spoil Dorothy’s plans.
