Looking for more opportunities to help kids shine!

The more the merrier!  We want to afford some more children the opportunity to develop public speaking and performance skills through our wonderful programme.  Places open particularly in our Monday studio.

Staying snug and warm!

It's hard to concentrate when one is freezing cold, so we had a slippers and dressing-gown week here in the icy Bloemfontein weather!

Parent Day Presentations

At the end of Term Two we present a cross-section of activities and work done so far in the year.

Here our Friday St James class is performing a small scene called "The School Camp"

Our Parent Day Presentations are a great opportunity to showcase our fun and vibrant classes.  The children love showing their families and friends what they have achieved over the year so far.

Term Two Under Way

An integral part of Term Two is our preparations for a "Parent Day Presentation". This hones performance skills, projection and articulation in speech, and flow of movement.
Here some Brebner students are making a start on some 'mini-scripts' - short scripted scenes.

Term Two is just about upon us.

The holiday break is nearly over. Looking forward to seeing everyone back in class next week! Hand out your "Free Drama Class" vouchers to friends you think may be able to join us, and see you all soon! And to whet the appetite, here are some of our Whacky Week photos from last term:)

Once a year we have a "Bring-a-Grownup-Day".  The Parents, grand-parents, aunts and uncles, all participate in the class.  The children are so proud of their abilities, and the parents gain a great appreciation of the skills we learn in Drama class.
