Course Notes

This drama course is aimed to develop performance skills using a variety of techniques where imagination and team work will provide an excellent outlet for creativity as well as boosting confidence and self-esteem.

The course will include the following areas:

Voice Work

Exploring the elements of voice and speech eg: breathing, voice placing, resonance, range, and word colouring whilst working with a variety of texts.

Improvisation Skills

A chance to work without the restraints of a script thus enabling the groups to make imaginative decisions and develop a piece of work using drama techniques.

Working With Masks

Masks have an impact on stage and how they connect with an audience often using nonverbal communication. There will be an opportunity to work with full masks and bring characters to life in a vivid and dramatic way.

Exploring Shakespeare

Knowledge of The Bard is not required as the text will be made clear through structured exercises and games.

During these fun sessions, themes and characters can be developed and explored.
