In the Barry John Acting Studio YOUNG ACTORS CLUB and YAC JUNIORS 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.

We have come to learn that Seema Sareen, who ran our program last year, has been approaching venues, parents and students offering a Summer acting program for children. Seema Sareen has no current association with Barry John Acting Studio and any programs she offers are not from BJAS.
BY REQUEST OF STUDENTS AND PARENTS, we are organising a YAC Theatre Group with the goal of a full-length musical play to be performed later this year. Please contact Faraz on our front desk on 9716114466.

“Trusting the child’s innate ability to ‘do’ is the best way to ensure a healthy process of development. Young Actors Club classes are holistic, experiential education targeting the bodies, the voices, the minds and the feelings of students.”
