of the different classes that Erica Sodos offers:
from the Beginning
This is a workshop which enables the students to create
their own characters, relationships and storyline. It can
be very empowering to co-create a piece of theatre from
the very beginning. Leading the children through a variety
of improvisational games each child will create a character
of their own making. Once they have a strong sense of their
character they will begin to form relationships with the
others in the class. We will then create a play from the
in class improvisations.
Through a Clown’s Eyes
The students will study different historical periods and
the clown from that era. We will discuss how the Clown character
reflected the culture and why they were a vital element
to society. Class will include acting games.
The students will discover their own personal Clown. They
will learn basic Clown skills and then create a costume,
name and routine for their own personal unique Clown.
These fun games include acting like different animals, objects
and people. Here the children can develop relationships
and act ‘as if’. These classes include lots
of pantomime, imaginary scenarios and vocal games.
Here the children have the opportunity to act out well known
fairytales and stories. The children are also able to create
and act out stories right out of their own imaginations.
We work with lots of costumes, hats and props. Using a variety
of puppets the children are able to create voices and stories
for the puppets.
Utilizing guitar, drum, flute and various percussive instruments
the children are led through different games encouraging
them to move in a variety of ways. These exercises incorporate
dance, yoga and lots of freezes.
it into Reality
Is the real life comedy/drama any different than acting
in a play? In our own lives we are also the actors, writers,
directors, set and costume designers. Through theater games,
improvisation, magic and movement we will create new scenes
Sodos can create a special program created for you.Creative
play is extremely enjoyable, expands the imagination and
allows for freedom of expression and the release of emotions.
Drama classes help develop self-confidence and ability to
work constructively with others.
