Acting_UP_Drama_Class_11-16

 

Our classes for seven to 11 year olds are fast‐paced and lots of fun!

We start the session with an energetic warm‐up exercise, ensuring that the whole class is working together to have as enjoyable a time as possible.

We then begin to explore the topic at hand with an improvisation activity or a task that will get the children thinking about characters. After that, we look at plays, poems, stories or techniques, depending on what we’re focussing on each term.

Sometimes these classes will be rehearsing; other times they will be using our ‘story sticks’ to create their own plays; and sometimes the children might be learning how to project their voices, use body language to become a different character, or manipulate their faces to look like the biggest, scariest giant in town.
