An excellent taster drama acting class, or for learners who already love drama and want to do more, or a fun, engaging way for learners to build their confidence, communication, and social skills. After a fun drama warm-up the Story Fairy and her pet dragon Smurkle will take learners on a fun, interactive journey to explore story island and the best bit is each learner will get a chance to decide what we do and where we go next. Will we visit the Pirate Ship, Whispering Woods, Butterfly...
This class is taught in English.
Learners can build their confidence, communication, and social skills by choosing what happens at each point of our story, and acting out what happens as we go.
I am a fully qualified teacher (BAPA, PGCE) with 16+ years of experience teaching Drama, English, Music, PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health, and Citizenship education), and Performing Arts in bricks and mortar schools, where I currently still teach part-time. I also run small group confidence-building workshops and 1:1 tutoring sessions. I 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 well. As a professional actress, I've performed for 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. I am a Mummy to two young kids myself too, in fact, that is how the 'Story Fairy' was born!
20 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is an active class so please make sure your learner is dressed so they can move around comfortably, make sure they also have adequate space where they won't bump into anything whilst we swim through a lagoon or climb a beanstalk, and a drink nearby in case they need it.
