Extra-Curricular Clubs & Activities
Drama (Grade 3-5)
The Zephyr Theater partners with New Life Academy to offer theatre to Grades 2-5. The artistic staff will work closely with students on all elements of theatrical performance, with an emphasis on education in techniques such as dance, singing, movement, diction, direction, storytelling, improvisation, vocal production, non-verbal communication, and stage presence. These areas not only become the foundation of theatrical performances, but also build a set of skills that the students will be able to use in all areas of their lives.
