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

Drama Game Energy BallThis is a classic theatre game! In a large circle, have all players hold their hands up, palms facing each other. Next, ask them to imagine that they are holding a ball of energy. Invite them to feel the energy pulsating and radiating light. Have them make it larger, and then smaller. After a few moments of practice, have everyone drop their hands and choose one person to create an energy ball and toss it to another player across the circle. Players can make their energy balls move quickly, or very slowly. They can be large or tiny. Players receiving the energy ball can transform the ball before tossing it to another player.
