— Flint Youth Theatre Drama School presents another series of exciting and challenging dramatic arts classes for students age 3 through grade 12. FYT Drama School continues to provide students with qualified instruction in a professional and nurturing atmosphere with the Winter Term of FYT Drama School beginning Jan. 11.
From creative dramatics to advanced scene study, young actors can develop their spirit, imagination and acting techniques as they gain valuable life skills of confidence, creative problem-solving, teamwork and personal responsibility.
During the Winter Term, students age 3 to grade four are exposed to the Creative Drama curriculum encouraging a uniquely personal creative response in each child. Creative play and process drama activities nurture imagination, self-expression and confidence while developing individual willingness to participate as a respectful and contributing member of a group. Students in grades five through 12 learn and put into practice the fundamentals of the Acting and Dramatic Arts curriculum, designed to help them develop as an individual artist and as an effective member of a creative ensemble.
Each year, FYT Drama School provides students with opportunities to tell great stories, meet new people, develop confidence, learn how to present themselves and discover what it is like to act on stage.
FYT Drama School classes are offered in four sessions throughout the year: the Fall Term beginning Sept. 14, the Winter Term beginning Jan. 11, the Spring Term beginning March 29 and the Summer Term beginning June 20. Students may register for a term at any time before the term begins. Financial need-based scholarship opportunities are available for each term through the Drama School Scholarship fund.
