Centre Stage Company (7 – 12)
Musical Theatre – Singing & Drama
Centre Stage at Farnham Music and Drama is the first step into the world of the performing arts. Led by Jenny and Edward, the emphasis is on encouraging children to tap into their imagination and bring their own ideas to life in a fun and motivating way.
Each week the session involves; Warm up games, including getting to know you, trust, and confidence games, improvisation, and group work. Students will develop skills including using their imagination to create characters and scenes, direction in small groups, and be able to critique their own work. We also work on improving students’ voices and movement. We do not do dance, but we do move and act to the songs that we learn. The main focus is on students enjoying expressing themselves and developing their performance skills.
