Our Classes - KINDY DRAMA - Ages 3-5 Our Kindy Program has been developed by experts in early year development. Young children learn to take their first steps into our fast-moving world with confidence. The key to this is to allow children opportunities to develop skills in verbal communication. Highly creative classes involve storytelling, dramatic play, speech training, creative movement, songs and language development activities, all based around a central theme. Important life skills our Kindy children learn include; listening, sharing, taking turns, following instructions, memory skills, vocalizing thoughts and emotions. LOWER AND UPPER PRIMARY PROGRAM - Ages 5-8 and 9-12 We believe the Primary years are crucial in building a positive approach to life. Introductory activities develop spontaneous language work and ad-lib skills, teaching children how to role play, speak in full sentences and be spontaneous. By doing so, young people become better at resolving conflict and handling situations that may come up in their lives. Speech work is always a very important part of the curriculum. Children are trained, in a fun way, how to use their voices effectively as a communication tool. YOUTH THEATRE - Ages 13-17 (18) Designed to accommodate pre-teens and teenagers, our Youth program offers further opportunities to students with a continued interest in drama. While the self-development aspect is continued in youth theatre, the approach is more theatre arts orientated. The varied and challenging program includes, voice work building improvisations, mini-scripts monologues, open ended duologues, soap operas, radio plays and theatre games.
