Character Development (Ages 8.5+)

 

In this class, children usually have several of my Mel O' Drama sessions under their belt before joining. We delve much further into drama in character development creating characters which eventually tie into a play that we present at the end of session. We incorporate theatre games into this class also which really creates a strong bond amongst the students. We end this session with a show of our work!

Improv (Ages 8+)

 

This is a fast-paced, fun and often times HYSTERICAL class! If you've ever seen the show 'who's line is it anyway?' and LOVED it then this class is very much like the child-friendly version of that show! It's a WONDERFUL way to encourage kids to let go and create with little or no premeditation! We finish this session with a 'who's line is it anyway?' type show where we ask the audience for suggestions and when I tell you this is by far our FUNNIEST show at Mel O' Drama, I am NOT kidding! A GREAT class for the kid who just LOVES to be funny!!

OUR NEWEST CLASS! Teen Improv for ages 13-17! Be a part of an improv troupe! 

 

 

We are SO excited to bring this class to local teens having seen the benefits of this class for our 8-12 year olds! We are starting this class with a goal of forming an improv troupe who could then perform locally at open mic nights (like that at the Milton Art Centre) and other places in the area too! 

 

Students in this class will learn how much FUN it is to bring scenes and skits to life on stage with little or no time to rehearse! It's a fast paced class and helps students think on their feet, trust their instincts and experience the benefits of confidence and bonding with peers. Skills learned in class bring huge benefits to other situations in a students life, particularly social interactions. 

Fridays 5-6pm LOCATION TBA

MEL O' MOVES: expressive movement

(AGES 6+) 

 

This is a GREAT class for the child who loves to move and groove! Students listen to a variety of music and together with the teacher, they discuss what emotions they feel when listening to the songs. This class encourages students to reach deep within themselves to find the most efficient ways of expressing thoughts and feelings. Students quickly realize how little the spoken word has to of with effective communication! 

 

Songs are choreographed using sign language, teaching students to express the message of each song though movement, signs and facial gestures. Children will learn the power of how actions speak louder than words as they move through the course of this class. Lead by pediatric psychologist and sign language expert, Ms. Robyn Fatseas, local children are in for such a treat in this class!
