Fall 2022 After School Theater Programming Thursdays, Sep 15 - Jan 26
Welcome to Broadway Bound Kids! We are so excited to be offering a diverse semester of theater, dance, and music programs for the PS 527 community! BBK is an after school dedicated to providing a brave space where students belong and are heard. All Broadway Bound Kids classes will be grounded in trauma informed practice and social emotional learning, focusing on community, confidence, and skill building. We cannot wait to create and learn with you all this fall!
Kindergarten - 2nd Grade:Mix-It-Up Dance! In Mix-It-Up-Dance, K-2nd Graders will experience the ultimate dance mash-up. Students will learn dance moves from a wide range of styles including Jazz, Hip Hop, Theater, Contemporary, Ballroom, Ballet and more! With this introduction to an array of musical genres, students will be exposed to rich vocabulary, a diverse variety of dance influences and choreographers, and will explore storytelling through the artform of dance. This class will discover rhythm, technique, and expression, and students will have a blast learning different kinds of movement. At the end of the semester, each class will pick their favorite genres and work on choreography for a final sharing to present dance pieces in their favorite styles.
3rd - 5th Grade: Curtain Up! Curtain Up will provide students a diverse and engaging musical theater program after school that ultimately culminates in a sharing featuring all of the students involved. This program will be an action packed two hours of fun each week focusing on theater skill building. Students in this program will learn the basics of acting, singing, dancing, and improvisation, as well as learn to hone their unique voice as a theater creator. The students will perform in their own piece working towards a sharing at the end of the semester. Our Teaching Artists will meet every student where they are, aiming for each student to find growth and a sense of accomplishment at the end of the semester. We will build community in our classes, and offer a chance for each student involved to grow their relationship with theater!
