Instructor: Judy Goodman
Classes are 1.5-2 hours, beginning with a group physical warm up. This is followed by theater games related to the theme of the class. Classes will include a lot of partner and small group work with a focus on improvisation, short scenes and possible short scripted work.
The students in the class have a range of disabilities from mobility, developmental, hearing, vision impairments and some psychiatric disabilities. Additionally, there are staff and volunteers who attend and support the students. Ages of students range from 17 to people in there 60's.
Volunteers need not be actors or have experience acting, just a desire to participate and have fun. At the end of the semester there will be an informal presentation for family and friends.
Volunteer duties could include: participating in warm ups and modeling, pairing up with students and assisting in small movement or acting scenes, setting up AV equipment, and modeling scenes with the instructor (depending on the level of comfort and experience of the volunteer).
Volunteers are welcome to assist with one or both classes and are welcome to visit initially to see if it's a good match. Feel free to contact the instructor with questions. This is a fun, participatory and potentially life changing experience for both the volunteers and the participants in the class.
These classes are free to the public and non-credit and open to anyone, with or without disabilities.
