Drama Drama 2.0

Drama Drama 2.0

with Tessa Mitchell

Over 10 people have attended this class


Explore freedom of expression and dramatic-play in this fun two-day drama workshop - back by popular demand!

Suitable for new or returning students, our experienced tutor Tessa Mitchell will guide kids through the fundamental elements of storytelling, character building and performance, through movement, voice and imaginative creation.

We’ll have tonnes of fun with classic acting games and exercises designed to gently encourage children’s full expression of themselves. Developing confidence with the aid of puppets, favourite animal role-plays and collaboration in small groups, the young actors will create short scenes and develop YouTube video ideas together!

To wrap up on the second day, the class will culminate in a performance parade through Corban Estate Arts Centre, giving everyone the chance strut their stuff, and take a final bow.
