Millennium Academy Costume Design 2016-2017
In this course, students will learn sewing and design terminology, care and maintenance of sewing machines, basic sewing techniques, design and Dzrepurposingdz. We will begin with basic sewing and design skills and students will progress at their own pace. Students will be required to purchase their own fabric and patterns for individual sewing projects. All attempts will be made to keep costs low for each project. Signing up for coupons at Joann Fabrics and Hobby Lobby is suggested, as well as downloading those stores apps.
Dance students will gain skills and knowledge of basic dance forms, history, and choreographic principles. By the end of the year, students will have performed in dances, learned about various forms of dance, and created their own dances based on what they have learned about musicality, movement, and cultural and historical context.
In this course, students will learn theatre terminology for the stage, acting, directing, and technical aspects of production. Much of the course content will be studied through active, hands-on projects. Students will learn to do acting warm-ups, improvisations, monologues, and two-, three, and four-person scenes. Performances and some selected in-class work may be video-recorded for analysis and evaluation. Students will read and analyze scenes and plays. They will write brief scenes based on short stories, parts of novels, and/or their own inspiration. Finally, students will research artists in the theatre and attend and review at least one live performance per semester.
