Children from 4-9 years old will have the opportunity to participate in a five week theatre and dance workshop for children at Sonoma State University designed to have them experimenting in storytelling, improvisation, movement and dance. This is the 32 year of this wonderful program for children. Under the guidance of Theatre Professor Judy Navas and Dance Professor Nancy Lyons, youngsters will be taught by Sonoma State University theatre and dance majors.
The cost for the five week class is $10. If a second child in the family participates in the workshop, the cost is $5 for that child or $15 for both of them. If a child takes both the dance and drama class, the fee is $15. If a second child in the family does the same thing, the cost for the two children is $20.
The theatre classes will be broken down into two sessions. classes begin on Thursday, April 28, and meet for consecutive Thursdays through May 26: Youngsters ages five and six will meet from 4:15 to 4:45. The older group, ages seven to 10 will meet from 5-5:45 p.m.
Parents are encouraged to participate in the last class with their children, viewing their performance and progress.
