Arts to Grow’s Cypress Hills LDC/ PS 7 Acting Class Final Performance

On March 16, 2011 Arts to Grow’s program at Cypress Hills Local Development Corporation’s PS 7 After School program held a final presentation for friends and family. 

During our winter cycle, students became young actors while meeting once weekly since January learning a range of acting skills, working together as an ensemble and concentrating on mastering a short play they created as a class. Each class performed their own short play: Beach, The World Next Door, Movies and The Zoo Story.

Arts to Grow’s Teaching Artist, Gardiner Comfort lead four acting class for student’s in grades 2-4 beginning in October 2010. Kids started with the basics of acting like vocal production, energizing games, and the guidelines of being on the stage. In the second semester, students were guided through the process of creating an original play and learning techniques for performing on stage. Students learned not only how to act on the stage in a theater ensemble and how to write short plays.  The final presentation beamed with imagination, team work, hard work and pride in creating and performing an original work.  BRAVO!
