Spotlite Theatre Workshop with Jacob Ernst
Feb 22, 2020 - Feb 22, 2020

Join us for this exciting and experiential theatre class for children with disabilities. Come explore the transformative power of artistic expression through theater activities led by drama students from the School for the Creative and Performing Arts at Lafayette Senior High School in a fun and safe environment. Experience the freedom to try new things and make mistakes. Through theatre-based play and activities this workshop will encourage and build essential life skills. Learn emotion recognition, nonverbal gestures, eye contact, listening skills, suitable greetings, and farewells. Additional focus will also be placed on developing conversation skills including volume control, manners, and conversation etiquette through repeated practice.

Jacob Ernst is a Senior at Lafayette High School and has been a drama student at Lexington's School for the Creative and Performing Arts (SCAPA) since the 4th grade. He believes passionately in the transformative power of theatre as art and has always advocated strongly for the right for persons with disabilities to be included wherever and whenever possible. In searching for a way to make an impact within his community, Jacob began thinking of a way to make these two worlds collide. From that, the idea for THE SPOTLITE - Lexington's Inclusive Theatre Ensemble - was born.
