- Unlock imagination and creativity
- Improve peer interaction and collaboration
- Express emotions through the voice and body
- Develop character-building skills
Note: PAC recognises the varying levels of experience amongst its students and so our teachers, at all times, will adjust their classes to accomodate to all levels.
This 10-week course for kids in Grades K-2 is all about fun and exploration and is designed to nurture, not tamper with their already vivid and colourful imaginations. Through a range of practical exercises, improvisation and play, students will learn to create stories with their voices and bodies and in doing so, will explore different world and characters.
The course will culminate in an end-of-year showcase for family and friends.
Students will be lead by energetic and passionate teachers whose first goal is to create a supportive, fun and dynamic learning environment. Students will be encouraged to be free, playful and thoughtful actors and each class is designed to awaken students to the power of their own voices and bodies.
