Class Time: Friday 5:00-6:30pm ET 10 Weeks, 10 Classes
Our Public Speaking class is for all levels of experience. We will learn voice and diction exercises, relaxation techniques and methods to boost student confidence. We will practice speaking in front of a safe and supportive small group, practice using group exercises, and learn helpful breathing and posture skills. All activities are voluntary, and children will only be asked to do what they are comfortable doing, as they are encouraged to take new risks. Students will explore creative methods to utilize all their natural tools: bodies, voices and intellect. We will practice storytelling using simple stories, tales and poetry. Once mastered, we will move on to speeches and presentations. We will learn positive group dynamics as well as how to become an attentive, respectful audience member. Students will meet online, and then have homework videotaping themselves and sharing weekly in a supportive and respectful environment! This active, engaging program will culminate in an informal virtual performance by the students for their friends and family.
