- Stepping Stones Recovery College
Course / Workshop Content
WHO IS THIS FOR? This course is for adults of any age who would like a relaxing, fun way to ‘come out of their shell’, or build on existing skills when speaking to or performing in front of other people. WHAT WILL I LEARN? You will learn at your own pace how to interpret poems (funny, dramatic or classical - the choice is yours!) for performance. You will learn a very short poem (from 6-18 lines depending on your selection) and over five weeks look at it in different ways. We will explore how wearing a mask or using a puppet can free us from self-consciousness and have fun playing with interpretation. At the end of the five weeks, using a green screen so you can choose a background, each person will film their poem to keep or share, using great facial expressions and body language to suit the words. HOW CAN I USE WHAT I LEARN? Self-confidence and self-awareness are great skills to polish for everyday life, and key to how others might perceive us. Being more aware of how you physically reflect what you are thinking and feeling to the outside world will help you make sure the best version of you is seen. As part of a class, you will able to learn and observe from others too, and apply that to your own skill set.
If you cannot attend a workshop, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can offer your place to someone else. Thank you.
