Pre-Professional Ensemble

STC’s Pre-Professional Ensemble classes allow students to tap into their imaginations by starting a lifelong relationship with theatre. In a nurturing, non-competitive atmosphere, students gain self-confidence while increasing skills in public speaking and cooperation. With concentration on character development, improvisation, and the rehearsal process, Ensemble Classes incorporate theatre games, scene study, and audition techniques for students with all levels of experience. Sessions culminate in a presentation of a play and/or monologues for family and friends.

STC_YOUTH_20140322_123“To be successful on stage requires a strong sense of community, energy and shared expectations. Working together as an ensemble optimizes motivation and promotes the expectation that the actors are all in it together.” -Glass, Meyer, and Rose from “Universal Design for Learning and the Arts”, Harvard Educational Review
