Poetry  Ages 10 & Up

This class teaches our students everything they need to know about reading, interpreting, and writing poetry.  It focuses on raising our youth’s standards in literacy and developing language skills. Students will focus on the words themselves, the dynamics of tone, gestures, facial expressions and how these can be partnered with other art forms such as music, theatre and dance. Our class will introduce students to traditional poetry, spoken word and story telling.

ANAA use voice only music, percussion instruments and synthetic computer generated sounds during our classes and performances. All classes for kids and teenagers are segregated.

Students will also have opportunities to perform in front of audiences.  We encourage children to share their talent to inspire others with their new skills.

Each class at ANAA will participate in putting together a showcase event at the end of the year to show off their skills, gain confidence and to inspire the community and parents.
