Miss Lily’s Theatre Class - lillianmyers.com
Topics of study include Performance skills, theater production + guest teaching artists. Final performance produced and edited by students with a virtual performance.
Theatre is more than actors pretending to be someone else. In theatre, society examines itself and views the issues that confront our culture. We can then be more aware and effective citizens. In theatre arts, participants interact with others of various ages, backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs–opening them up to a new set of opinions and ideas. This promotes understanding, tolerance, and empathy.
Topics of Study include: Art Sketchbook and Journaling - Reflective writing about character, day books; Literature Circles - Read plays, discuss elements of story-making, critical analysis; Performance Skills - Acting, improvising, stage combat, red nose clowning, circus skills, dance, vocal exercises, acrobatic yoga, warm up games and more; Theatre Production - Costuming, lighting, sound design, props and set design
Goals and Benefits to Homeschoolers:
Supports passion for life long learning and encourages natural curiosity
Challenges intellect and increases self-confidence in public speaking
Fosters emotional growth, team building and communication skills in an ensemble
Increases self knowledge, self-expression, and self- empowerment
Become tolerant, empathic, globally aware citizens as they examine local and world cultures through play.

Find your JOY in the midst of the crisis!
We all know, these are unsettling times. Life is not life as we knew it. Enough said! As a veteran homeschooling parent for two decades, a professional organizer, and a certified health & wellness coach I am here to help you maneuver through the ever changing climate and find the opportunity in these slower days.
I hope to BLOG as often as possible and to share with you to the daily challenges so many of us now face. Like most of you, life today, in a our entire family home daily, looks nothing like it did two months ago. Like all things in life, some of these things I try work while others totally flop. The main thing is to never, never, never give up. I hope that you enjoy what I share and that you are not overwhelmed. My goal is to offer a little more calm, a little more happiness, and maybe even a little laughter on each of your visits.
We, the world, are experiencing a pandemic. Something which none of us have ever seen, or could ever have imagined. We are faced daily with challenges that we might find hard to comprehend for our own selves, much less being emotionally available for our loved ones that need and depend on us.
I am here to share my insights with anyone interested, in the hopes that what you read here on my website, or what you learn working with me in a one-on-one session, may lift your spirit, lighten you day, or give hope to a heavy heart. No matter how big, or how small… we can come up with solutions for the issues that might be keeping you from the joy that you deserve in your daily life.
