Kinder-Theatre Ages 4-6
Drama is a great way for children to express themselves and stretch their imaginations. As they work as a team, youngsters learn social skills which enable them to share, communicate and think of others. As they grow and develop, children find it easier to express themselves physically and emotionally, thus boosting their confidence.
The focus of this program is to encourage cooperation and group awareness. Our artist-educators introduce a variety of theatre games that use physical movement to create a positive group energy, trust, and sensitivity towards peers.
Acting Out! Ages 6+
Our school- age drama classes are a great introduction for young kids to the world of drama. Our classes explore drama through theatre games, improvisation, stage direction, voice, and movement. Whether your students want to perform or just want to have fun, our classes help build confidence and self esteem, strengthen communication skills, teach valuable social skills, and foster the imagination-all in a fun and supportive environment.

Very soon you’ll see an improvement in your child’s dance technique, co-ordination, fitness, flexibility and stamina which will help your child become more confident to take part in sporting and other activities inside and outside of school.
Preschool Music Ages 3-6
Music and drama offers young children a way of naturally expressing themselves, developing social skills and enhancing their love of imagination and play. This class will combine songs, puppets, rhymes, games, finger play, role play and creative movement activities that allow children to develop their imaginations. Rhythm instruments such as sticks, bells, shakers and drums are used so that children develop their natural responsiveness to rhythm, beat, melody and tone and puppets, costume pieces and props help to enforce the creative exploration.
