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.

We have routines in place to help participants keep physical distance and we maintain high standards of hygiene. Click here for more information about our Covid-19 policy.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

GROUPS:

We have one group for 9-11 year olds, and one for 12-16 year olds.

During this course we will work on improvisations, theatre games, role-play and text work, culminating in a performance on the GEST stage. This course is suitable for both beginners and intermediate students (those who have been attending the GEST Youth Drama Club previous term). Led by professional actors and drama practitioners from Britain, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn about what happens on stage and behind the scenes.

Please note these classes are held in English only.
