This is a special FREE online class presented by KidPass Live Stage (https://kidp.as/live). KidPass Live Stage is a free livestream series that is open for the community and showcases many of the incredible classes and instructors on KidPass.
Grab your (imaginary!) goggles and join us as we become pirate princesses, sea dragons and schools of funny fish! Travel to the ocean’s depths on fantastical creatures and learn how to build your very own seashore! Students create underwater worlds through improvisation, theater games and creative movement.
Students are led by expert theater artists, trained in early childhood education and skilled at centering kids’ imaginative adventures. These sessions help kids work collaboratively, practice empathy, and gain confidence in a joyful setting...pure fun!
The last 5 minutes of the program will be a parent Q&A about Child's Play NY summer camps.
Note that as a KidPass Live Stage performance, this class and your participation may be posted on KidPass social media. Since it is formatted for a large audience, there will be limited instructor interaction.

When to arrive:
Students will just need a device and their imaginations! We recommend propping the device on a table or stool so they are free to move around.
