Providing feedback during the process will help solidify what they are doing correctly so they can continue to apply this knowledge in the future!
Posture and Projection
Positive reinforcement and sharing successes lets students know what they are mastering and also what needs to be focused on next!
Giving a concrete example of something done well is a great segue into sharing something that needs improvement.
I see everyone supporting one another. Your jobs are to make sure everyone feels safe and I am watching the ensemble take care of everyone. Hands are up around the edges and everyone is holding on. The ensemble is strong. I see you problem-solving creatively and you are succeeding at this task! Trust and positive communication is the foundation of our class and you are doing both!
Your posture is incredibly accurate for a character who would have been wearing a corset. Your back was straight and your breathing was controlled. Your projection started out soft and became louder as you gained more confidence during your performance. Remember, if your voice begins to hurt or feel tired, you need to support your volume with the air using your diaphragm.
I am really proud of how accurate you are with your pantomime. You pay close attention to the size and shape of the items with which you interact. For example, the glass of water is always the same size and your muscle control shows how the glass becomes lighter as you drink. Just remember to make sure the height of the table is always the same!
