This drama warm-up is part of a collection of 40 classic drama games found on Drama Notebook.

Drama Games Catch and ClapPlayers in a circle. Toss a bean bag or easy-to-catch ball back and forth around the circle. Let players know that it is the thrower’s responsibility to allow the catcher to catch it! Once a rhythm is established, introduce a “clap” every time the ball is in the air. All other players must clap in unison while the ball is in the air. Play until there is a nice rhythm and flow! For more advanced drama groups, introduce another ball into play.
