''Building confidence on stage and off stage''
Successfully running in schools across the south, Confidence through Drama runs as a regular after school programme. These workshops bring skills such as voice, improvisation and story telling alongside building confidence through trust exercises and focus on communication and life skills.
Suitable for Infants, Junior and Secondary ages.
Two hour intensive workshops, that delves into acting and performance skills whilst largely focusing on building self-esteem. This workshops teaches anxiety coping techniques, and introduces drama as a fun and confidence building tool.
Ideal for schools and organisations - multiple workshops can be delivered throughout the course of a year.
Confidence through Drama workshops will work towards two performances a year in schools, which is a great chance for children to express themselves and enjoy performing in front of others! These performances are open to parents, family and friends, and are always a special occasion!
All performances will have a theme, and have even included Matilda or A Christmas Carol! This gives the children a chance to dress up and have fun, but also explore famous literature! These performances are devised as a whole group, with children having a large input towards the show.
Performances are always relaxed, in a friendly and encouraging atmosphere, allowing everyone to do what they can and have confidence!
Please purchase our specialist text book to consider the programme for your establishment.
**Ready for September 2018**
My daughter attended the weekly drama group run by Carley and Steve and absolutely loved it. It was very heartwarming to see her confidence coming out and getting stronger and stronger. She loved the group and both Carley and Steve are great at what they do, definitely recommend them. Sadly my daughter had to leave when further school commitments took over.
I did a weeks worth of work experience with them and I loved it! I learnt loads of new drama skills and games, got to interact with children of all ages and understand the planning the goes into their sessions! Thank you for the opportunity!
My daughter started the drama group and also the singing lessons in September at Julies dance in sholing, she absolutely loves it the amount her confidence has grown is amazing and as her parent it makes me smile to know she's doing something that she really enjoys yet is also helping her to grow as a child, Carley and Stevie have been very professional yet also very caring with my daughter, so thank you to them and I would honestly recommend the groups to anyone x
