CIDA’s Drama Club started as one of our COVID-19 projects for youth and young adults to overcome social isolation and regression. The Summer 2020 Drama Club was led by Q Lim, a talented Broadway actress, along with nine volunteers. Through this program, the project participants were able to learn more about acting through various warm-up exercises, scene study worksheets, and partner scene readings. The participants also showed great improvement in social skills, speech dictation, expressing different emotions, and confidence. During the final performance, students presented their scenes in front of an audience through Zoom and Facebook live. 2020 Summer Drama Club project was made possible by the KACF COVID-19 Grant and the support from the CIDA Board of Directors.
Starting Fall 2020, the program will be available for the public at low cost. The Fall 2020 schedule and application will be announced soon!
