At Stages, we firmly believe that every child has the right to be heard, to feel valued and confident to share their ideas. We are dedicated to helping your child develop confidence, communication skills, co-ordination and concentration through drama. With small class sizes and qualified teachers & Industry professionals leading you can know that your child will receive the attention they deserve.
We put your child at the heart of everything we do, planning drama sessions specifically to meet the individual needs of each member. In our non competitive environment students support each other to achieve together!
Our weekly sessions always cover social skills, teamwork, communication, concentration and co-ordination through fun drama games and activities linked to our main topic or theme.
Vocal and physical warm ups are employed to reduce tension that restrains the body and voice. Through developing correct techniques the actor is free to perform and communicate meaning.
Understanding how to interpret the written word, engaging emotionally and intellectually with the words, developing this understanding into a performance or responding to a stimulus and shaping a devised performance.
We regularly provide opportunities for all our students to perform & share their work through informal events as well as our annual Summer Showcase.
But our emphasis is less on producing polished performances and more on the development of skills.
