Join us each day for this exciting drama camp geared towards kids on the Autism Spectrum in grades 4 and beyond including high school. Each day will have a session for younger participants starting at 9:30 and a session for older participants beginning at 10:45.
What makes a Hero? Why do heroes make tragic choices? Are heroes ever funny?
If you have wondered about these things, or about any other questions of human behavior, this class is for you. We will follow the Hero on a journey through adventure, tragedy, and comedy to explore the ways in which we tell stories, and the ways in which a character chooses to behave. Each class will experiment with story-telling, drama, and acting technique to find out how each kind of story builds a hero, and how to find the heroic moments in our own lives.
LOCATION: Kaleidoscope Theatre Studios located on the 3rd floor of the Burnside Community Centre
