Classes for School Year 4 - 9. focusing on building confidence and teamwork. We are working on stage breathing and voice projection, learning all about creating sketches and improvisations so vital for developing acting skills. We aim to teach our students how to approach new characters and understand their emotional state, how to take directions from a director and work as a tight creative team through analysing their own behaviour and observing others. But most of all we want to create a fun environment for our students to enjoy themselves and learn through laughter and sense of achievement. All exercises and topics are tailored to the students' age.
