COVID PROTOCOLS as of April 24, 2022

SCCT remains committed to the health and safety of our students. When we opened enrollment for our spring classes, the CDC was recommending indoor-mask wearing. The CDC has since adjusted its guidance and now makes county-specific recommendations based on a new formula. More information can be found here:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
 
Greenville County and the surrounding counties are categorized in the “low” community level. In this category, the CDC no longer recommends masks be worn indoors and instead encourages individuals to make the choice they feel is best for them. We have worked hard to follow CDC guidelines since the beginning of the pandemic. As such, we are making the decision to adjust our mask policy in all SCCT classes. Masks will now be optional, but recommended, especially for those who are unvaccinated and/or immunocompromised. We will continue to monitor the situation and reserve the right to make adjustments to this policy.
 
Please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly with any concerns you have. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters together. 

In addition, five bipolar ionization units have been installed into all of our HVAC air handlers to ensure that everyone in our facility has access to the cleanest, safest, and healthiest air possible. Surface disinfection will happen between classes. Our theatre is sanitized with an electrostatic sprayer using an EPA-approved, food safe biocide designed to kill coronavirus on surfaces within minutes. Hand sanitizer stations are placed throughout the facility.

We will continue to monitor the COVID situation in our area and reserve the right to make adjustments to safety protocols accordingly.

Due to limited space for audiences in our classrooms, we will record the end-of-semester “sharing” for all classes and send parent’s the video link allowing each family to celebrate their child’s performance at a time convenient for everyone in the family and making it possible to easily share with distant family members. Our “sharings” are informal performances. Our goal is to engage the students in preparing for the low-pressure performance, without causing undo anxiety and also not spending every minute of class time solely repeating rehearsals. The “sharings” will not be highly polished and will be very low tech as our primary goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable class experience, filled with group interaction and fun.

**We DO meet when Greenville County Schools are off for Teacher Workdays or Holidays, but WILL skip Spring Break Week March 21-27.**

We will record the end-of-semester “sharing” for all classes and send parent’s the video link.

Get a taste of stardom and explore the process of theatre training through high-energy theatre games, improvisation and activities. Create characters, explore dramatic interpretation of classic stories, learn lingo and challenge your imagination and hone projection and articulation skills while engaging the body in purposeful physical expression. Some at-home memorization required.

Please note: progression through acting classes is not like progressing through grade levels of school.  Many children simply enjoy the kinesthetic learning and team building aspects of drama class. Your child should be enthusiastic about their participation and should only move to a higher-level class when they have mastered core components and are seeking further challenge. In general, we suggest a minimum of two full semesters of Process level classes before moving to Intermediate level classes.  Students should be able to: name the parts of the stage, use abbreviations for stage directions, be able to define basic theatrical terms, understand CROoWw, be familiar with Lessac energies and Laban qualities as well as wanting to be given more responsibilities/homework and be willing to repeat material weekly for rehearsal. Your current SCCT teacher is always the best reference for whether your child is ready to move up and you should email them regarding your child’s progression if you have questions.

Voice-Over Acting – Improve Reading & Expression | 3rd-6th

Tuesdays, March 8-May 17 | 4:15 – 5:15 PM | Lauren Wilson Stewart | $160

Every cartoon or animated feature you’ve ever seen and almost every commercial has a voice-over performer!  And reading out loud is a skill every child needs to hone for book reports and class presentations.  Fear of public speaking is the number one phobia for adults.  Let’s fix that now! A great class to improve verbal expression and reading skills overall, but your child will have fun while doing it and no lines to memorize!

Improv! – Acting without a Script | 2nd-6th

Mondays, March 7-May 16 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | Mia Phillips | $160
Thursdays, March 10-May 19 | 4:00 – 5:00 PM | Mia Phillips | $160

Be bold! This class is focused on improvisation training and performance.  The objective is for the actor to become comfortable in acting without a script.  Benefits for the beginning, intermediate, new and returning student actors are:

  • Working as an independent actor, exploring all areas of acting without a script
  • Working in groups and learning how to “think on your feet” and perform without self-judgment.

A good class for those who want to further their scene study skills, character development skills, and stretch and explore their imagination and creativity.  Improvisation training improves performance skills– allowing students to receive all information around them before making choices of their own.  Be prepared to laugh and to laugh at yourself too!

Sing! | K5-3rd

Mondays, March 7-May 16 | 5:15 – 6:15 PM | Lauren Wilson Stewart | $160 Sold Out!
Wednesdays, March 9-May 18 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | Lauren Wilson Stewart | $160 Sold Out!

Is your child always singing and dancing around your home? Let’s channel that creative energy with SING! We will learn the music and fun choreography to some of our favorites. No reading required, but a love of performing is a must! The class will focus on ensemble musical theatre material.

Musical Theatre – Sound of Music/Mary Poppins | 1st-6th

Thursdays, March 10-May 19 | 4:15 – 5:15 PM | Chelsea LaCourse & Jessica Smith | $175

Musical theatre training for performance—you don’t have to read music, but should enjoy singing and basic dance. Learning very basic music terminology and basic movement/staging for a song, will help youngsters feel more comfortable at a musical audition. The class will focus on ensemble musical theatre material taking our inspiration from the Broadway favorites, THE SOUND OF MUSIC and MARY POPPINS. Due to social distancing guidelines, the choreography will be done primarily in place and really allow for each student to “sell the song.” All selected material will be appropriate for this age group.
