Drama classes for children aged 5 to 7 years – 24 January to 14 March

A new drama class providing a creative, nurturing and exhilarating environment for young children.

Discovering theatre is an energising encounter with words, stories, and imagination. Encouraging young actors to explore the depths of their imaginations, using their voices and bodies, is a core objective of National Children’s Theatre (NCT) educational programming. Make-believe and dramatic play builds confidence and supports cognitive development.

In this class, children have fun playing drama games that foster creativity, self-expression and teamwork, which act as a foundation for future drama activities. They will work together to dramatize stories as well as create their own. Creative drama activities will incorporate basic acting, music and movement. Parents will be able to see a class in action at the end of the half year. Children’s natural love of stories blossoms along with their confidence, self-expression and group skills.

The class is designed to help and encourage children to focus their energy and imagination, through an all-new weekly journey to a world that has never before been seen. They’ll meet characters, solve problems, and work together as a team. They’ll explore aspects of a storybook using their five senses. There will be things to touch, smell, create, and more, and the wardrobe room has plenty to offer in the way of dress-up clothes.

They will use their imaginations to travel back in time to days of long ago when knights were bold, dragons were huge, and princesses were always beautiful and extremely intelligent. Children learn the basics of acting without even realising it, as their voices, bodies and imaginations expand on fantasy adventures.

Every term brings entirely new adventures! Themes such as: Dragons, Knights and Princesses, Amazing Animals, Outer space, Adventure Stars.

A great class for anyone who loves to make believe!

Cost: R 600 per child per term.
