YOUTH DRAMA CLUB
Acting classes for kids
GEST's Youth Drama Club is a ten-week acting course for both non-native and native English speakers. Through improvisations, theatre games, role-play and text work, our drama courses teach acting skills in a friendly and supportive environment, and culminate in a performance on the GEST stage. This course is suitable for both beginners and intermediate students (those who have previously attended GEST Youth Drama Club).
Please note these classes are held in English only.
We have one group for 9-11 year olds, and one for 12-16 year olds.

GEST presents Youth Drama Club in English!
During the course we work on improvisation, role-play, character building, and text work, culminating in a performance in front of an invited audience of family and friends.
Drama and acting is a fun and creative activity that can be offered to young people of all abilities. The imaginative and playful environment of the drama club helps young people to develop self-confidence and performance, team-working and problem-solving skills.
Led by GEST’s English speaking professional actors or drama practitioners, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn about what happens on, as well as off stage.
