AGES 12 – 18
WEEKLY SESSIONS THROUGHOUT THE ACADEMIC YEAR
THIS CLASS IS ACTION-PACKED FUN!
Students have an hour of singing, acting, stage technique and through the medium of drama specific life skill’s themes are explored each week. The second hour of the class is dance/hip hop training. Even though there are larger numbers in this class, great care is taken to give each student equal opportunity to develop further talent. The emphasis is on building confidence and having fun rather than creating ‘little stars’, however, if suitable, plenty of opportunities for auditioning for, and performing in professional shows are available along with the preparation and support throughout the process. Indeed, many of the students have enjoyed great success in this regard. All students will work towards performing in the fully costumed annual show at The Mill Theatre, Dundrum, where all children are treated equally regardless of their standard of performance. While training of the highest standard is provided, the school prides itself on its focus on the well-being and encouragement of each child’s development, to prepare them for the inevitable challenges of life.
