Unlock your creative imagination and watch your confidence grow while exploring the wide world of drama!
What will you learn on this course?
On this weekly course, children will learn to embrace and develop their creativity while learning various dramatic principles, theatre and puppetry elements. The first step consists in creating a tight group where young people will feel comfortable exploring their imagination and growing their performance skills through fun exercises and theatre games.
The main aim of this course is developing a set of skills that can be used both inside and outside the theatre studio. Skills such as improvisation, movement, problem solving, group work, and public speaking will grow confidence and have a long-lasting impact in young peoples’ lives.
The tutor works closely with the group in order to create a happy safe space while also providing a stimulus for the playful exploration of ideas.
