Junior - Stage Kids
Stage Kids is for 6-9 year olds and focuses on Drama, Movement, different syles of theatre and skills needed for Key Stage 1 and 2. It runs for 1 hour on a Saturday from 11.00-12.00pm at Trinity Hall, Rushams Road, Horsham
From the age of 6 children begin to move from make believe to a more planned form of drama and so during this youth theatre we look at improvised, planned and scripted drama leading to performance.
For the winter term the fees are: £88 for 11 weeks
Please contact Victoria at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07725034279 if you would like to book a space.
Stage Kids runs for a term at a time and children need to sign up for the whole term, this is because we build on the learning each week and do a performance at the end of each 11 week term.
Each term looks at a new topic (which is announced on our news page) and encourages:
> Group work
> Solo performance
> Small scale script writing
> Developing confidence
> Having fun whilst doing it !
The elements and mediums of drama, such as costumes, props, voice, character, movement and gesture are explored as are some of the explorative strategies used in drama. Children are taught to understand why different choices should be made to create believable characterisation and how to communicate with an audience, as well as being encouraged to use different dramatic traditions.
Every child will work at their own pace!
Parents do not stay to this class and may wait in the foyer - lets face it, children never do what we want them to when the parents are around!!
