Class Experience

In this fun-filled class, we will dive into the world of character creation. Each week, we will create a craft that inspires a different character, such as masks, puppets, and superhero capes! Through physical exercises, games, and guided creative explorations, we will learn how to create and embody a clear character and have fun in the process. We will also play improv games and develop storytelling skills that lead us into devising a one-of-a-kind story to perform at the end of the session.


Students will have their temperatures taken upon arrival at Burgundy, and anyone with a temperature above 98.6 will not be able to join the class that week. Masks will be mandatory, and social distancing will be incorporated into the movement activities.
This class will help children expand their creativity and self-expression skills in a supportive environment.
