FYT Drama School holds summer classes

FLINT — The 2012-2013 Flint Youth Theatre Drama School season begins with Summer classes on June 25.

Classes are designed for students who are looking for a creative outlet and a place to build on their passion for theatre. Class fees range from $70 to $95. Registration and information are available by calling 810-237-1530.

Registrations are also accepted in person at FYT, 1220 East Kearsley St., in the Flint Cultural Center. Complete class descriptions and registration forms are available at www.FlintYouthTheatre.org.

During the eight-session term, students age four through grade four experience the Creative Drama curriculum. This approach encourages a uniquely personal creative response from 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. Courses in this curriculum include Creative Play, Dramatic Adventures and Story to Stage.

Students in grades five through 12 learn and put into practice the fundamentals of acting through the Acting curriculum. These classes are designed to help students develop as individual artists and as effective members of a creative ensemble. Each course draws from specific techniques to develop a student’s mind, voice and body for a confident and honest performance before a live audience. This curriculum includes the Beginning Acting class and the Acting I, II and III classes.

All of the FYT Drama School classes culminate in a demonstration for family and friends on the final day of class.

Students may register for a term at any time before classes begin. Financial needbased tuition assistance is available for each term through the Drama School Scholarship fund. An application may be obtained by calling Flint Youth Theatre at 810-237-1530. — G.G.
