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.
SUMMER THEATRE WORKSHOPS
We’ve finished all the Summer Workshop courses except for Habitat (performance on 30 June) with performances last week in Cambridge School Noida, Genesis Global School and for South Delhi venues at Iskcon auditorium. The performances this year were deservedly well-received by parents and friends of the kids, who put on some really great short plays. More importantly, the kids had a great time in class, learning, creating and expressing themselves with confidence.

“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.”
