Drama develops confident, creative young people.

Designed for those who want to get a taste of drama, this after school class is a great introduction to the foundations of theatre ad drama training. Students are introduced to the basics of voice and movement, developing skills for the stage, and confidence to clearly express themselves.

MSTYP’s drama exercises and games are designed to build creative problem solving skills and unlock their inherent creativity. Through Drama students develop a deeper understanding of the world, and of themselves; as well as build foundations for performance.

What about the Coronavirus?

MSTYP is committed to providing the safest environment for students, staff and families. Measures include
• Anyone on site required to adhere to social distancing, including in class
• Increased the cleaning
• All students must wash their hands before and after class and hand sanitiser will be provided
• We are strictly following advice from the government during this time.

Should it be advisable that the classes do not take place face-to-face then we will provide options of:

Supervision prior to class

Getting to class early? Waiting for a sibling to finish their Drama Express Class? From 4:00 to 6:00pm we offer supervision for students who arrive early to do quiet activities such as homework or reading. Tutors will be engaged in teaching the prior class, so students there for supervision do need to remain in the room, and be respectful of the class currently running. If students under supervision do disrupt the class, supervision may no longer be offered.
