What will you learn on this course?
On this weekly course children will learn how their ideas can be transformed into a piece of theatre. Through various theatre games and exercises young people will develop their confidence, creativity, group work, speaking, listening and performance and presentation skills.
Each term a theme is chosen and the group will create performance material inspired by this theme. The students will be taught aspects of devising, acting, rhythm, movement and voice. The tutor works closely with the group providing a stimulus for the playful exploration of ideas. The children’s ideas are then adapted and directed during rehearsals to form the foundation of an end of term performance.
