Kindergarten Level – K1 to K2 Programme
This is a creativity and acting skills-based programme for kindergarten that uses stories, discussions, drama activities, movement, music, improvised activities, scenes and adventures to develop Confidence, Creativity and Collaboration. Each week the children learn and practise new skills that are necessary for the budding performer, for example: vocal projection, emotional control, confidence, creativity and the ability to work together in a team environment. Alongside these essential theatrical skills, the children learn how to truly become the characters through characterisation techniques. Each week your child also gets the opportunity to use, explore and engage with various props and costume pieces from the Creativity Chest. These items are used as a stimulus to create monologues, dialogues and improvised scenes. The Creativity Chest allows your child to push their creative limits and lets their ideas soar! All these skills build throughout the term into a short performance for parents to watch on the 10th lesson! Come and watch your kindergarten kid shine!!!
