About the Class

This course is designed for kids who are just starting to develop a taste for the dramatic! We will be focusing on creating a safe, positive and fun space in which kids can work on communication skills and theatre performance techniques. Sessions will include: body awareness and characterisation exercises, collaboration activities, self-confidence boosters and the use of drama to convey feelings, thoughts and emotions. This class is a great opportunity for kids to explore and get to know the world of theatre!
