Dramatic Arts

Despite the state of the world right now, we in the Dramatic Arts department are choosing to be hopeful and find the silver linings in every situation we find ourselves in. We understand that there must be immense feelings of loss and disappointment from our students and families, as events and rehearsals are suspended until further notice, however, we are trusting in the one who created us, the one who knows us, the one who loves us and the one who has a plan for us.

We are encouraging students to now take ownership over their creative endeavours and take some time to truly rest and connect with our creator God. We hope you will join us in believing this: “I trust the next chapter because I know the author.” In every class, we are asking each student to share a good news story or something they are grateful for. We are also meditating on Psalm 91, which reminds us that God is our refuge and place of safety.

Now is the time for students to refine their performing arts skills at home. Watch YouTube tutorials, do some stretches and home workouts, choreograph a dance, compose a song, draw a picture. Do what it takes to remain creative and engaged in the arts. It is so healthy. We want to remind all families that they belong at Genesis, and continue to hold a very special place in the heart of the Dramatic Arts department.

With you on the journey.
