Drama with a Difference offers primary school aged children with drama classes for a variety of needs and intentions:

  • Increased confidence and self-esteem.
  • Better communication and team playing skills
  • Enhanced sense of creativity
  • Speaking in front of others
  • Children who may wish to look at the possibility of auditioning (and perhaps obtaining) roles in film, TV and Theatre.

Our courses are designed to accommodate students starting later in the term or the year (except when we are very close to performance times).

Subjects include:

  • Improvisation: Coming up with imaginative ideas “on the spot”
  • Character Work
  • Creative Movement: Not dance as such, expressive, free form movement which relates to how different characters move.
  • Voice: As the child gets more confident and/or experienced, the voice naturally strengthens.
  • Towards the end of the year, children will take part in a public performance.
