Through drama games and performances, we explore key themes over a 12 week block. Take part as we teach you techniques that showcase characterisation, emotion and storytelling. Watch as we share our newly discovered knowledge of technique and acting. Join us for the end of term performance by our Drama Squad Juniors members!
From a very young age, children respond to words with movement, and this movement and fun will come naturally to your child.
Watch your child gain confidence to explore their own creativity and style.
Your child will gain the confidence and creativity to showcase their storytelling, emotion and characterisation at the end of each term.
Develop your child’s performing skills so they can achieve a performance which is engaging and connects with the audience.
These sessions take place on Thursdays, 5.15-6pm. Children well need leggings, a BHVA t-shirt and hair tied up.

This week we had a look at a script from the first meeting of Mary and Colin,
We answered these questions:
What emotions can we see in this piece?
What could the characters be thinking about during this scene?
We then in teams of two had a go at performing the script, watching and evaluating as a team.
This Week we had another close look at the script between Mary and Colin. We looked at some key words for helping us with script work!

Circumduction- a body part circling in movement
Locomotor movement- a movement that allows the body to travel across the space (e.g. skipping, hopping, running etc….)
Non-Locomotor movement- a movement that doesn’t allow you to move around the space (e.g. stretching, swaying, extending)
Flexion- bending a joint in
Extension- straightening a joint
