Freeze and Justify
This drama game is a great improvisation warm-up exercise to give student actors a chance to lose their inhibitions and let creativity freely flow.
The students will be encouraged to walk around the space, constantly changing the shapes of their bodies, exploring unusual poses.
All players will move with expression, exploring interesting levels, styles of movement, characters, emotions, and senses. When the cue is called, players freeze and if asked, must vocally justify the creative statue position. Expressive movement leading to interesting statues with result in creative responses form the players.
This drama activity emphasizes:
• risk taking
• spatial awareness
• creative movement
• physical expression
• vocal expression
I am excited to share my years of experience and my wealth of knowledge in the successful exploration of adding DRAMA to your class curriculum! I have taught drama and speech for over 30 years! Try using drama in your class and you will be hooked!
Many teachers shy away from using drama games in their classrooms because the drama resources do not give a step by step guide in order to successfully teach the activity!
“Greetings From Marrs” activities are:
• created by a veteran drama teacher
• complete, easy to follow step-by-step instruction
• everything you will need to be able to teach exciting and valuable drama lessons to your students
• student favorite drama activities
• lesson plans that focus on the important information needed to successfully teach the activity
This creative drama activity supports the National Core Arts Standards.
Teachers who incorporate the arts, especially theatre, operate in an active “hands-on” and “minds-on” capacity. And, their students love it!
Any teacher, who has seen a student become excited, energized and confident through artistic exploration has seen first-hand how arts education engages children and contributes to their overall development.
“Freeze and Justify” offers everything needed to provide an interesting, innovative, step-by-step unit so that any teacher can confidently incorporate DRAMA into the classroom learning.
