Middle School
Welcome To Drama
Dominion offers Drama as an exciting elective that strives to expand and encourage creativity and imagination. Now what does that mean exactly? I know what you're thinking. "What would we even do in that class? I don't want to look stupid in front of my friends!" No worries, it's fun. I promise.

At DMS we offer 6th, 7th and 8th grade Drama.
6th grade Encore classes rotate every semester, so 6th graders get an introduction to the world of Drama. They learn everything from basic terminology, stage directions, and how to improvise. We also create our own commercials, SNL style skits and create their own play at the end of the semester to share at our Cabaret Night for families.

7th grade Encore classes are also on a semester rotation, and we review what they learned in 6th grade as well as delve deeper into creative drama projects. Students participate in a variety of projects including silent movies, writing our own plays, monologues, and scenes. We wrap everything up at the end of the semester with a Cabaret Night where the students can show off what they've learned to their friends and family. DVDs are also available of all of the student's performance work.

8th grade Encore classes are semester courses that students receive high school credit. We study Theatre History, Costume Design, Set Design, the works of William Shakespeare, etc.
Drama Productions: In addition to the drama classes offered, the Drama Department puts on Fall and Spring Talent Shows, a Fall play and a Spring Musical. We offer free performances to the local elementary schools to help give back to our community and help expose more students to the arts.

Make sure to check out our upcoming productions!
