Coeur d’Alene Students, Grades 2-5

Students will explore some of their favorite roles and songs from “The Wizard of Oz” and the hit Broadway musical “Wicked”!

They will also play theatre games and improvisation exercises, and at the end of the session, will collaborate to create a recording of one of their favorite songs from these two musicals.

The need for Social Emotional Learning is now stronger than ever. Students need a way of expressing their feelings, and a means of connecting with each other that they are not receiving in their day to day lives. Join us for this fun class that is sure to give them something to look forward to each week!
