Drama is for life. In this class, our young students go on a Drama Discovery journey.

Students develop confidence in relating to others as they work together in both groups and pairs to develop performance pieces and participate in drama exercises. Here they learn how to express ideas and feelings through their voice and movement. Vocal clarity and motor skills are developed through mime and theatre games – often what appears to be a simple game is teaching the basics of theatre and performance.

Students at this age are introduced to improvisation – the art of not knowing what’s going to happen next on stage! This is a lot of fun and develops performance skills.

Term Modules

Each term this class works on two modules; an drama module, and a skills based module. A certificate is presented at the end of Term 4, as proof of completion.

Drama Module
Skills Module

The class includes:
• Vocal exercises to develop projection and clarity
• Physical movement for creative expression
• Character development
• Focus and relaxation exercises
• Preparing devised group work
• Introductory mime skills
• Theatre games to introduce them to the foundations of performance

The class is limited to 16 students. We believe small classes help create a quality learning environment.

This class develops a short, informal performance piece in the last term of the year for family and friends. This is performed within class time.
