Galileo Drama Department is made up of 3 different groups: drama classes, drama club, and our annual spring play.
Drama develops self esteem, public speaking, working as a team, creative thinking, problem solving, developing empathy for others, and reading comprehension.
Galileo currently offers beginning drama classes to all of its students. Drama classes are project based and cover acting basics, character building, monologue and scene development, memorization, and performance analysis. Projects are presented as mini lessons with modeled examples. Our class plays a lot of theater/improv games to develop the needed skills while building an ensemble. The class uses rubrics to evaluate performances, and constantly gives positive specific feedback to peers.
