Through fun and engaging activities and exercises, students will develop their creativity, empathy, confidence and teamwork skills. Each lesson focuses on one or two Learning Points to help students develop their stagecraft. Students learn about characterisation through exercises in physicality, facial expressions, voicework, costuming and props. Students are introduced to improvisation, where they develop their ability to create characters, tell stories and become adaptable and resilient performers. The PPAM syllabus has a strong focus on practical performance skills including giving students the skills to overcome nerves and stagefright; how to unpack and tackle a script; practice safe voicework; and learn about the ins and outs of being in the theatre. Whether your child is interested in pursuing a career in acting, auditioning for their school production or would simply like to be able to move through the world as a confident, effective communicator, the Drama & Acting class will be tailored to suit your child’s individual interests and needs. PPAM Drama & Acting classes are non-competitive so all activities are inclusive, allowing students to learn at their own pace in a fun, safe and supportive environment.
