If your homeschool group wants to expand their artistic skills then you can travel to Disney and participate in a Workshop. There are workshops in Acting, Singing and Dance at the Florida location which is closer to Wilkesboro. You can also be adventurous and travel to California. There are many opportunties to explore as a group in Disney.
Your homeschoolers can participate in Acting 101. They will learn according to Disney:
"Designed for all levels of actors, this 90-minute workshop provides students with the building blocks of theatre, while exploring performance and storytelling techniques. Led by an industry show director or improvisational actor, the course focuses on tapping into the artist's unique voice, thereby discovering the tools to develop performance abilities. Students also learn to build character, develop improvisational skills, and maintain professionalism on the stage.
Your group will engage in interactive discussions and acting exercises as they:
◦Master the building blocks of basic theatre, performance and storytelling techniques.
◦Use scene study as a vehicle for introducing and building character.
◦Practice improvisational skills while discovering how to maintain professionalism on stage.
Learning how to think and act spontaneously and assertively, no matter what the situation, is an ability that will serve any student well on stage—and beyond. "
Check out the possiblities of learning and exploring at Disney with your homeschoolers. Then head back to Wilkesboro and find local opportunities to grow these skills with your homeschool groups. You can always find more resources at the Wilkes Public Library.
