At ACT 3 Drama Academy, we open up worlds and start children on a journey of self-awareness, confidence and growth.
Active, participatory and aesthetically rewarding, our Drama programmes for children and young people are sensitive to the artistic potential, emotional maturity and intellectual development of the very young from 18 months to teens who are eager to find their voice and contribute their ideas.
We encourage children of all ages to be versatile, to think on their feet and not be afraid to experiment with novel ways of expressing and communicating thoughts and ideas.
We provide practical opportunities for children to learn through and about Drama, in an environment that is loving and flexible, never critical or pressurising.
Drama for the very young
Ages 1.5 to 3
Drama can be experienced and enjoyed by even the very young, especially through structured dramatic play.
This is a parent and child class where parents are integral in the partnership of building positive learning journeys for this age group.
Drama for young children
Age groups 3s, 4/5s and 6/7s
As children become more aware of themselves and their environment, our program builds on their thinking skills and social interaction development by using Drama principles and experiences.
Drama for older children
Age groups 8/9s, 10/11s and 12 to 15s
As children develop independence, we give them more opportunities to participate and be engaged in the theatrical, artistic and literary process of creating Drama.
