After School Autumn 'Extras'

What a challenging adventure of a school year we have before us!  Now that we have gotten into the (remote) swing of things, the Salt Lake Arts Academy is offering just a few extras to add to your week for those who are interested. 
 
Our After School ON-LINE / OFF-SITE Extras are fun, engaging classes & clubs that will be more than resources to read or activities to try on your own, but real-time with teachers who are excited to share their passions and expertise in a new way. We all get to experiment!
 
Our schedule is different, cost is reduced, and there are fewer offerings available, however we still hope to connect and explore, to try some new activities, or have a place to keep some favorite arts & activities alive and available. See the list below for more details, and sign up to register here:

Thank you for taking this journey with us this year!
 
DRAMA GAMES / closed - Full
On Tuesdays OR Wednesday, join us for Imaginative theater games that will have you on your feet, spouting adjectives, telling stories, and defining the essential 4 W's -- the What, Why, Where, and Who necessary to every scene and story. We'll tell group stories, incorporate our senses into each scene, and listen & learn to work as a dynamic team. Learn some of the basic games that led to Second City and SNL. Improvisation builds trust and confidence in a fun, supportive manner. Trust yourself, improve your public speaking, and best of all share tons of laughs!
