Let's get your child started with Speech Bubbles in Canberra!
Perform Australia's 'Speech Bubbles' program is a fantastic weekly 45-minute speech and drama class in school terms designed especially for 4-6 year-olds.
We recognise and celebrate that children in this age group have an innate ability to be creative, and we harness and channel that energy towards foundational performance skills.
Learning Program - 2020
The Speech Bubbles program lays a foundation for the development of performance skills. Each weekly lesson is themed around a phonic sound (e.g. b, p, i, etc), which supports what children are learning at school and preschool. The teacher guides students through a series of drama activities involving creative play, improvisation and storytelling relating to the phonic sound. Throughout each lesson, develop their self-expression as they enact a range of characters, actions and emotions.
