Stepping Stones Art (Youth)

In our program we play theatre games created to build the students confidence with each other and in themselves. They also design a part of the story we are focusing on for the day and then they get to act out the story as individuals or as a group. Finally, we end the class with a dress up game.

I believe each child has a talent or interest that connects to theatre, from building items used in the story called props, telling a story about their day to designing a set which is sometimes a card board house or castle.
