Sonnets Juniors

Terms dates: Saturday 10th September to Saturday 26th November 2022 (no class 22 and 29 October).

Theatre school for 7-11 year olds, focusing on confidence building, life skills, improvisation, script formulation, movement and speech.

Drama classes are structured to coach pupils in 4 key areas:

1. Mime: Acting without speaking. This is generally acting without props and trying to tell a story and express feelings relying on your body stance and facial expression.

2. Improvisation: Acting without a script and with only a small amount of direction. It is spontaneous acting using your imagination to captivate your audience. It gives children the confidence to perform with little or no planning, children learn to develop their own characters and stories.

3. Confidence & Projection: Learning to stand up tall and speak with confidence when acting, so everyone can hear you, when on stage or making a speech or presentation.

4. Emotions: How to express our feelings when acting. Props may be used, such as a colour, objects, stories, pictures or an attitude. Emotions make a performance more realistic and interesting. The inflection in our voices can show emotion, as well as using our body moves.
