Kompany Family Theatre has had the opportunity to help students in the Edmonton Catholic School District think about healthy lifestyles each year at their wellness symposium. Two of our professional performers lead the students, alongside a group of wellness experts, as they move through a circuit of workshops. The day culminates in a final set of drama-based workshops that examine the issues dealt with throughout the day.
This year’s drama workshops were focused on:
- Healthy Relationships
- Digital Citizenship
- Positive Mental Health
- Healthy Choices Regarding Drugs & Alcohol
The day culminated in the creation of a music video, where the students choreographed what they had learned about stress management into several short phrases of dance, which then added up to a performance that accompanied Taylor Swift’s Shake it Off.
