The University of Utah Youth Program's "Training for the Young Person Who Is Interested in Drama" series of classes will begin spring quarter on April 5.

These classes provide an opportunity for interested youths to be introduced to what drama is all about, with discussions led by Dr. Xan Johnson and his staff.Each class is designed to address the development needs of a given age.

Classes and their formal U. designations are: Grades 1-2 (70Y-1); Grades 3-4 (70Y-2); Grades 5-6 (70Y-3) and Grades 7-8 (70Y-4).

The younger groups focus on self discovery of personal resources, while the older grades explore group dynamics and interpersonal conflicts and choices and how to apply such skills and knowledge to live theater.

The classes will be held on Wednesdays from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. in the West Institute Building, 300 South & University streets, across from the Pioneer Memorial Theatre building.
