Broadway Kids at Bell Elementary

Posted by on Nov 16, 2011 in Featured Articles, Uncategorized

This class is always loaded with enthusiastic energy for musical theatre! Many of the students have taken the class before and are becoming masters at the fundamentals of every successful actor: IMAGINATION and BRAVERY. In order to access our imagination and bravery we begin every class by warming up our bodies and our voices through games and warmups. Some of this class's favorites are the Machine Game where we build a human machine using each student, and Bippity Bippity Bop which we add new rules to each week.
We have collaborated to write our own play to be performed on the last day of class. The student's selected "Hakuna Matata" from The Lion King and "Bop to the Top" from High School Musical to center our story around. Our play focuses on a group of actors who have flown to Hollywood for a big audition. Together they help each other through the fear of flying, stage fright, and preparing for the big day!
I am impressed with how much excitement and energy this class brings to games and rehearsal each week. They are definitely a fun bunch!
