For 10 years, Youth Ensemble Theater has worked with groups of intergenerational adults, youths, and children to create ensemble theater, using its own combination of theater games and social awareness strategies. The goal has always been to create non-competitive forums to do good work and cultivate group responsibility. This fall, YET opens its doors to educators, group leaders and community members to learn this technique so that they can bring them to their own programs, groups, and schools.
- Group management skills
- Social skills & confidence
- Acting & performance techniques
- Flexible & Innovative thinking
YET was developed by Amy Poux, Director of Education at Film Society of Lincoln Center, former Coordinator of Arts Education, & Talent Development at Ulster BOCES, and educational specialist on Project Based Learning and arts education of 25 years. A former professional actress and director, Poux combines educational expertise and theater techniques to create non-competitive group environments in which its members can thrive.
