This is the first September since 2005 that I am unable to offer drama classes and a production. This is a very hard pill to swallow. The trouble with children is that they continue to grow, so over the course of the pandemic, I lost many students to college, jobs, and family. It takes a minimum of ten students to hold a viable session. I will continue to offer my services for Cosplay creations, monologue coaching, theater assistance, costuming, prop-creating, face painting, make-up classes, summer camp, etc. In addition, after several medical curveballs in the last eighteen months, I must admit I am not a spring chicken anymore. This too has led me to make the decision to no longer offer classes.
It is with a very heavy heart that I am retiring from teaching full time. I will always be here for my students, families and alumni. Drama Dragons has been a huge part of my life and a whole lot of fantastic memories. Thank you, Once a Dragon Always a Dragon.
We have had a lot of fun this past semester in our biweekly improv classes. The students have been exploring high-level improvisation concepts, and we’ve even discussed the philosophical aspect of how improv relates to life and vice versa.
Unfortunately, there will be no Summer Dragons camp this year, due to health reasons, and as of right now, the future of Dragons in general is undecided. We will provide you with more information when we have it.
Thank you all for your continued support of our program; we love you guys!
We hope you are all having a wonderful (safe) holiday this Christmas. Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to meet at all this semester due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Our plan for this next year is currently quite vague; we are relying solely on updates from the authorities, hoping that there will soon come a time when we are able to hold classes again. Do not fret! As soon as we know something about this next year of Drama Dragons, you will be the first to know.
For now, though, if you would like to reminisce with us about what the Drama Dragons were doing this time last year, here are links to both parts of our Christmas program last December, where we performed a dramatic reading of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”:
