Join us for our new evening drama classes where we will explore everywhere that your imagination can take you. Throughout the year our tutors follow a creative curriculum that ensures we cover a wide range of skills and techniques. The aim is that young people not only develop creative skills but also undertake personal and social development related to their interests and understanding of the world.
The students’ creativity and imagination are central to the experience we provide for this age group. We also focus on the development of new skills including voice, movement, improvisation, storytelling and creating characters.
Collaboration will be a vital part of this course as students will work with an experienced tutor to expand their acting skills and open their creativity as artists.
Throughout all our primary drama activities we find opportunities for discussion and reflection, deepening the learning. Most importantly, the classes are fun and connect young people with others who love being creative and taking part in drama activities.
Students will have the opportunity to share their work with two performances during the year.
- Peer Sharings – 12 December 2023 (classes share their work with each other)
- Public Sharings –18 June 2024 (family and friends are invited to this performance)
