On Thursday, February 2nd 2017, The Sierra School of Todos Santos, B.C.S, hosted the second of two theatre arts workshops with Ellen Rogosin, a professional theatre and Hollywood actress that worked for Walt Disney. Eileen likes to sing and dance in musicals. Ellen shared with us the two principal rules for drama, which are: listen to others and to never be afraid to make a fool of yourself. We enjoyed some exercises for warming up. Ellen taught us what dynamics are: all the aspects of actual oral presentation, then we learned a little segment from the play As You Like It by William Shakespeare.

We analyzed this passage and then Diego and Sebastian volunteered to interpret it visually. We also learned a part of a song from the play Peter Pan and acted it out. Later we did some tongue twisters. We also told Eileen something about ourselves and then she shared with us something about her. Eileen helped us to get more confident about making a fool of ourselves in public without being afraid that someone would laugh about us. Our two drama workshops were really fun and all students enjoyed them! We all look forward to further drama workshops with talented and passionate Eileen Rogosin again.
