What happens in a drama class?

The Check-in

We begin with connection - checking in with the kids to see how they're going. This helps take the temperature of the room, as well as build friendships within the group.

The Warm-up

Like athletes, actors warm up their voice and body. We spend a few minutes preparing for the work we're about to do. Sometimes it may also involve an energiser game.

The Learning

Here students focus on the key learning for the day - it might be theory, a technique, or a performance skill to practice. This usually involves workshopping it.

Script work or rehearsal

Depending their age and reading ability, students will often move to apply their learning to a script, either a small in-class script, or one they're preparing for public performance.
