L2 Drama - Semester A

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Lunt

Level 2 Drama: La La Land

Drama at its core inspires the love of exploring imagination physically. Drama helps to create confident, adaptable team players. It enables creative thinking in all aspects of a student’s life at Kaipara and beyond.

At Level Two, Drama continues to develop and hone the skills students have been using in Level One Drama. It also continues to grow students confidence in performing.

Semester A focuses on the influences of theatre and how it can inspire students own original drama. If you continue in Semester B, you will continue to use these skills and learn to perform more sustained and in-depth characterisation.

Semester A standards taught:

Achievement Standard 2.4 - Use complex performance skills associated with a drama or theatre form or period.
