Enter a magical world of drama and dress-ups! Children will learn oral language, acting, public speaking, confidence and social skills. This fun, the creative course will bring out the inner performers in young children, building their confidence and improving their skills.
Through drama, movement, improvisation and voice, children will develop their dance, acting and speaking skills and be involved in a host of summer-themed activities to promote problem-solving, participation and imagination.
Children will use their voices, enjoy music and dancing (building rhythm, musicality, following, balance and co-ordination). They will also use role-play and storytelling to build an imaginary spring fantasyland!
Children will work towards a performance on the final day, which parents are welcome to attend.
