Students Impress With Storytelling Through Dance

Students in Director of Theater Kyle Reynolds' drama class danced, hopped, twirled, kicked, shuffled, and spun their way through painting an authentic look into an average clip of their day. The assignment was based on the concept of physical storytelling, with no speaking allowed to describe the scene. Instead, students used their bodies, facial expressions, and the art of camera angles to tell a story, with the quest to answer the essential question: Can you use your body to tell a story?

And did they ever. As a matter of fact, they hit it out of the park. One student choreographed her own dance moves, another used a variety of props to accompany her dramatic day's journey, while still another made it a family affair! As Reynolds said after he watched them, “They were hilarious downright...truly genius.”

Silence is golden. And sometimes more powerful than words.
