YOUNG ACTORS CLUB
In the Barry John Acting Studio YOUNG ACTORS CLUB programs we use Drama for the healthy development of the child. Through an energetic engagement with drama activities and theatre games, opportunities are created for children to be themselves, to perform and to play. Children are connected naturally to the process through involvement with the characters they create and play. Children expand their mental ability by analysing problems, then seek their own individual solutions. They question what they see, hear and feel. Enhanced observation promotes an expansion of visions and perspectives.
YAC courses are conducted in a mix of English and Hindi depending on student preferences. Teachers are fluent in both languages, but the course is not about correct grammar, usage or pronunciation in any language – it’s about expression and drama, based on real life.
The BJAS YOUNG ACTORS CLUB is for children ages 8 to 15. We have courses on weekend afternoons during the school year and Summer Workshops, weekday mornings mid-May through mid-June. Call us or send a Contact form for the latest information on venues, timings and fees.
*** NEW DATES***YAC SUMMER 2016 dates are 23 May – 17 June 2016, except where noted below – some venues are earlier, some are later.
4 weeks, mornings 9 AM – 12.30 PM at most venues – call us to confirm dates. Many Delhi schools have told us they may close a week early “depending on how hot it is.” This means some Delhi venues may be pushed forward as long as the venues and parents agree.
