We Do It for the Kids, Johanna was was once asked by a parent after a show, one that followed two weeks of summer school program, “Why do you do it?” “We do it for the kids.” she replied without dropping a beat. Its that child focus that sets Little Seed apart. Johanna started acting as part of the Noosa Arts Youth Theatre in the early 1990s, and worked in childcare whilst she studied at the School of Creative Arts in Sydney, before Teaching Dramatic English to Chinese Students in Hong Kong. From there she moved to Indonesia to help post tsunami children recover and develop their confidence. So when she says she does it for the kids, it really is for the development of the full person. It just that performance skills operate at a higher level when the emotional needs of the child are met first.So, We do it for the kids!
