Teaching Drama

Moth to Flame

Last November, Claire Danes, Zac Efron, and Richard Linklaterwere in Washington, DC, speaking about the importance of arts education. They sat down with the Washington Post to talk about the impact the Arts, particularly in their formative years, has had in their lives.

The video of that conversation is up on YouTube and I found it very entertaining.

The best story comes from Claire Danes, recounting an early dance experience:

Every year we did a group piece but then every student at every age would choreograph their own piece. They would select their own music and their own theme. I was “Moth to Flame” one year.
