Acting Teaching Drama

Ten First Week Activities for Drama Class

First Week Activities for Drama Class
Written by Lindsay Price

The first week of drama class can be the toughest week of the semester. A drama class is quite different than a “regular” class. Students need to be comfortable with each other before the “real work” can begin.

The objective of the first few drama classes is to build that comfortable environment.

There are three things you need to do:

  • Break the ice
  • Establish an environment of trust
  • Turn the class into a community

The activities that work best for the first week of drama class tend to be games and exercises that are simple and let everyone get to know each other.
