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. 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.

Drama for 9-12 year olds

Exercises in relaxation, breathing, focus and communication prepare students for improvisation and the ability to present theatrical work with power and clarity.

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