WINTER DRAMA/THEATRE CLASSES
IMAGINE your world enriched through drama and theatre! EXPLORE your uniqueness, spontaneity and creativity. Through drama you gain a joyful awareness of yourself, others and the world around you. These drama skills enable you to EXPRESS character, improve speaking skills and gain confidence with movement. Theatre is an art form that communicates drama skills to other actors and an audience and allows you to PLAY. Whether you want to become a better human being (off-stage) or explore the magic of creating a character (on-stage), you are always learning how to act. We guide players to discover who they are, what they can do and who they can be.
