'Mime is the art of creating the illusion of reality'- Claude Kipnis Have you ever watched someone performing mime and wondered how do they do that?, Are you looking for an exciting new skill for a talent show piece or to amaze friends and family? Or do you simply want to learn how to create the ‘magic’ of mime? In this one-time acting class, you will learn what mime is and the very first starting points of how to perform it. From what ‘placing’ is, to how to show an audience where...
This class is taught in English.
There will be lots of opportunities to share these newly developing mime skills throughout the class, and receive encouraging feedback from myself, Mrs. T, as your teacher/instructor, and your fellow classmates. *As with all Stage Skills classes, on the completion of this class parents can contact me to request a personalised, printable certificate. Although this isn’t a formal qualification, it can look very good on a wall or in an achievement folder (especially if you collect the whole Stage Skills series) but can also be useful to show to Performing Arts settings, for auditions, or to help learners create an actor’s resume.
I have taken many workshops in this skill and I have a real passion for researching more and perfecting my craft. I have taught in-person group classes and love seeing learners develop a new passion or polish existing skills. I am a fully qualified teacher (BAPA, PGCE) with 16+ years of experience teaching Drama (and some Music, PSHCE, and English) to 11 to 15 years olds and Performing Arts to 16 to 18 year olds in bricks and mortar schools, where I currently still teach part-time, including running small group and 1:1 confidence building workshops. I also have many years of experience leading community workshop schemes (like create a play in a week) and local drama groups for ages 4 to 16. As a professional actress, I've performed to children from ages 2-14 in theatres, arts centres, social clubs, historical properties, nurseries, and schools. Playing roles such as the Gingerbread man and a tortoise, to a wartime headmistress and Queen Elizabeth the first! With lots of Q & A and interactive workshops along the way. I then branched into presenting (live, events, radio, some TV, and for holiday companies across Europe) including some Voiceover work. I currently create and present drama and presenter tuition videos and have a regular podcast. I have produced and directed many productions (musicals and plays) as well, including some I have written myself.
Homework is completely optional, but learners will gain some useful starting points and ideas of how to be able to go away and create their own mini mime performance to show family and friends if they wish.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
