Thespian Competitive Performance

BOCA PREP THEATRE ARTS ENRICHMENT

 

PRIMARY YEARS STUDENTS

This club approaches drama in a fun way. It introduces the skills of theater by exploring and enacting stories and poetry and makes use of exciting interactive drama games. Many important life lessons are learnt through participation in these drama activities – we see children grow in confidence, develop good communication skills and learn to work together. This club channels the talent of the extroverted child and helps the introverted child come out of his or her shell. Each quarter will have a new focus – students may choose to sign up for just one quarter or for the whole year.
