Introduces students to role playing, creative exercises, improvisation, physical movement, breathing, vocal warm-ups, various aspects that go into a theatrical production and other basic performance techniques.
Explores acting styles through historical information, critical thinking, character analysis, monologue and scene execution.
Introduces breathing techniques, coordination and motor skills, balance, muscle tone, stretching and awareness of others working in an ensemble setting, dance terminology in various disciplines (ballet, hip hop, contemporary, African and jazz), and body position on stage.
Strengthens diction and breathing techniques and their relation to music composition, vocal performance and instrumentation. Students will also learn how music influences the mood and action in a play.
Since 1985, more than 4,000 Houston area youth have participated in YPP, including some who are now professionals on Broadway, film and television, and a variety of other successful career paths.
