Acting is all about RE-Acting! and our classes enable students of all ages, whatever their experience to explore their potential through mime, physical theatre, voice and movement.
About the Class
Students will develop their skills in:
- Working together as a group.
- Learning to improvise (acting without script)
- Self discipline
- Releasing creativity and imagination through drama games and improvisation.
- Vocal support, projection and confidence.
The skills that the students will build on are not just performance based but ones that will serve them throughout life.
Emphasis is on group involvement, and then through this allowing each child to “find their own voice” through drama role play – exploring a wide variety of themes such as fairy tales, make-believe and moments from history. From this early age the pupils are encouraged to take the lead in creating their own stories and drama in class, using their imagination and creativity to release expression and build their confidence in doing so. Props and music play a large part in making these sessions stimulating and lots of fun!
Aiming to build on their improvisation and devising skills, pupils are encouraged to become more independent in their thinking and creativity by the introduction of smaller group work. In a supportive environment we learn about how to create different characters using our voices and bodies to tell more detailed stories to our audience – we are the story tellers – from slapstick to Shakespeare, with and without scripts each pupil can enjoy the rollercoaster ride of comedy to tragedy and back again!
Senior & Adult Drama
Whether new to acting or with experience, trust building and teamwork lay the foundations for a very supportive group ensemble. From here the variety of scripts and theatre styles explored continues to grow with improvisation an important tool in looking around the text. Characterisation, movement and language are challenged with the of different time periods we’ll look at from Greek, Restoration to today’s new writing. From monologues to choral speaking, you may find yourself stage fighting, trying out some mask work and creating your own piece of theatre!
From 2010 we will be entering classes for group LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) performance exams. Please contact the school for more details.
