Our workshops can be conducted either in conjunction with any of our plays, or as individual Workshops based on any chosen period in history. Examples are Viking, Tudor, Elizabethan, Georgian, Victorian, even the Wars or Modern Britain. It is entirely your choice.
Every Workshop that is not based on one of our plays will be introduced by an actor in costume to give an insight into the period, and create the atmosphere of the time.
In small groups of 6 or 7, the children will then be assisted and encouraged in creating and rehearsing short pieces that they will perform to the other groups.
As with all our Workshops, the emphasis will be on developing, watching, listening and creative skills, and the ability to work together.
We will include a brief "warm up" period and a short theatre game to ensure the children are in random mixed groups, and that they all participate.
Each Workshop will be of approximately 45 minutes duration and is suitable for one class of up to 35 children.
"These Workshops for children include glimpses of various theatre exercises and theatre games, which enhance the confidence level of the child."
Our Dance Workshops are a great participation activity and cover many aspects of the National Curriculum.
Every child can participate in one of our workshops, regardless of age and ability and they will get the chance to experience a vast range of dance styles, to fit in with your chosen topics.
Our Dance Workshops will develop ways of introducing fitness and health to the children and these are skills that you can retain and use within other lessons. As well as teaching your children about the different periods in history and different cultures, the Dance Workshop is dynamic and will help your children to communicate through the medium of dance.
