Professional actress and teacher, Judy Rosenblatt, offers "Building A Performance, an Experiential Introduction to the Basics of Acting.” Using a variety of theatre games and exercises, it concentrates on developing a wide range of fundamental skills that are not only essential to the actor, but of value to the non-actor as well. Among the skills developed are: increased focus, concentration and retention, positive experiences of collaborative cooperation, and ability to regard obstacles as challenges rather than "stops." Excellent for mainstream and children with ADHD in elementary, jr. high, and high school.
