Italian Kids Theater

Fondazione Italia is excited to be able to offer an Italian Kids Theater class! Children ages 6 to 13 will discover their own artistic potential and creativity through the alchemy of expressions and the magical power of words and storytelling. Starting from an introduction to ancient Greek theater, this class covers the evolution of theater up to modern theatrical representation with particular attention to humorous forms.

Each 90-minute class is divided into three phases. The first phase is dedicated to learning performance basics including movement (dance, mime, laughter yoga), voice projection and pronunciation. The second phase is dedicated to learning expressive techniques including how to introduce myself, speaking before an audience, improvisation and acting. The third phase is dedicated to the organization and implementation of the final performance.

Participants should have a low beginning level knowledge of Italian. This class is taught entirely in Italian.

A materials fee may be payable directly to the teacher on the first day of classes.
