AIMS

The two day acting workshops explore the key components of film and television acting such as objective work, being present in the moment and the art of performance naturalism.

The workshops have a light and entertaining tone, designed for younger students and their developing attention spans. The content however will be more complex, the delivery more direct and the expectations higher for older and mature teenagers.

Students will develop simple self-management skills that can help control nerves allowing them to explore their unique vocal and physical personalities to communicate confidently. The content is appropriate for all skill and experience levels, encouraging creativity, confidence and sense of play.

Workshops are generally held during the school holidays.

DRAMA

WEEKLY DROP-IN (Perth) – 90 Minutes per week at Iona Presentation College. Other locations available soon.

AIMS:

Weekly classes will provide students with a fun and accessible way to improve their drama skills. They will develop scripted and improvised performance techniques and simple self-management skills that will help them control performance nerves.  Embracing their own unique personalities, vocally and physically to communicate confidently is a big component of these workshops.
