Shake It Up!
In Shake It Up!, Hamptons Shakespeare Festival artist-educators work with students and classroom teachers to explore Shakespeare’s poetry and prose through acting, music, visual arts, and other disciplines. Activities foster reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills, creativity, and cooperation. Classroom visits feature performances by professional actors. Students make connections between Shakespeare, the arts, and other academic subjects.
The Festival offers a variety of workshops and residencies tailored to each class’ grade level (3rd - 12th), curriculum, and time constraints. We collaborate closely with classroom teachers, school administrators, arts coordinators, and parents. Shake It Up! activities are created with New York State Learning Standards in mind and assist schools in meeting curriculum requirements. Past residencies have included:
