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.
Creativity – Confidence – Cooperation
Gaining confidence by fostering creativity and cooperation.
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.
Drama differs from ‘theatre’ which is oriented towards ‘performance’ targeted at an audience. Drama is grounded in the realities of a child’s life. In the Young Actors Club students create their own plays with characters drawn from experience. The syllabus for the Young Actors Club classes includes a carefully planned sequence of Drama games, roleplays and activities, developed by Barry John, which focus on building students’ abilities in key areas including Breathing and Voicing, Imagination and Creativity, Movement, Performance Skills, Mime, Language Development and Script-writing. Ice-Breaking and Trust exercises enhance the students’ ability to cooperate with others on creative projects.
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.
“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.”
