Creative Drama for 3-5 year olds

TUESDAYS at 9.30am
Length: 45 mins
Fee: $130 per term, $220 per semester

TUESDAYS at 10.30am
Length: 45 mins
Fee: $130 per term, $220 per semester

THURSDAYS at 10.30am
Length: 45 mins
Fee: $130 per term, $220 per semester

In this class children are introduced to the theatre through well-known fables, children's books, theatre games and song.

The classes are designed for children to develop creative dramatic play through the eyes of the theatre. Together with their teacher they explore the characters, the story setting and props and even have the chance to change the story to their liking!

Enjoyable exercises and activities inspired by the stories will develop the child's cognitive skills, their physical and motor skills, their co-ordination, their focus and clarity of speech.

Play-making in the theatre benefits from sharing and listening. The co-operative environment encouraged by the teacher will deepen your child's emotional and social skills and give them an understanding of the shared experience and respect for others.

A final performance or play is not the goal for these classes. Our aim is to encourage children to develop a natural, unaffected quality in their story-making and play-building, allowing their true selves to shine without the pressure to "perform." In time, this will mature into a genuine and spontaneous performance style.

We look forward to getting to know your child and discovering what makes him or her so unique.

Drama for 5-9 year olds

Through creative drama children develop confidence in relating to others and using their voices clearly, expressing ideas and feelings through movement, mime and theatre games. For the youngest, voice and motor skills are developed and simple play-building skills are used in preparation for class performances. Older children's work includes shaping and presenting material through improvisation, development of character and script work.

These classes develop a performance piece in the last term of the year.
