Weathervane's core class curriculum provides every student with exceptional, consistent, dramatic training.
All classes have been developed to meet the State academic benchmarks within the applied Fine Art.
 

Core class content includes:

  • The study of theatre
  • The roles and responsibilities of actors, directors, designers and technicians.
  • Stage movement skills including: facing the audience, “cheating out,” using the upstage hand and using body language to communicate thoughts and feelings of a character.
  • Vocal projection and diction techniques for speaking loudly and clearly.
  • Stage directions and theatre vocabulary.
  • Methods for working in an ensemble and working as a group to present a performance at the end of each session.
  • Memorization techniques.
  • Dramatic exploration and creative expression through improvisation games and/or script work.
  • Theater history and/or historical, cultural and social contexts of a specific time period.
  • Character study through comparisons of story situations and their relationships to real life experiences.
