Improv
Thursdays 1:00-2:00

Pretend Drama
Taught by Cielja Kieft

  • Pretend
  • Dress up
  • Make-up
  • Play
  • Performing at the end of each class what you created with your friends
  • A lot of fun!

Information for parents: Being able for any child to express themselves is vital for their health, well-being and development. In ‘pretending’ this is where they can practice and discover how they see the world, people, friends, family. They become more conscious of verbal and non-verbal language and the impact these have on themselves and on others. This can greatly enhance their self-esteem and empower them. They will need to communicate their ideas to their peers and be creative problem-solvers for helping each other getting dressed up, putting make-up on and for the scenes that they will be in. I will create a benefit paper of my classes for those who like to add that to their homeschool curriculum.

Time – Wednesdays 10:30-11:45AM

Cost – 4 weeks $32 per child (sibling discounts available)

Ages – 5-8
