Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: speak clearly; show appropriate gesture in a dramatic, story telling or educational setting; and participate meaningfully with a speaking role in a dramatic production.


Instruction focuses on using a variety of dramatic disciplines, such as improvisation, role play, movement exercises and mime. Students prepare themselves for a dramatic presentation, tragedy or comedy, through extensive rehearsals (not reflected in the hours above). The course aims to allow students to become more aware of their use of language and gesture for curative work, and to participate in a social process.
