Ariel Capulets (New)
6Months - 4 pre school Drama. Our aim is to encourage young children to develop, grow and explore through drama and performing arts. The 45 minute sessions are packed full of drama games and activities, music, movement and singing activities for your baby, and toddler. Throughout the session we encourage children to take an active role to create drama which allows children to lead the way by mixing improvisation with structured classes.
These sessions are fun, a great way for your child to socialise and develop in a creative and stimulating environment. Attending sessions on a regular basis will help your child’s confidence and encourage good co-ordination, communication, co-operation and creative thinking.
Baby and Toddlers are encouraged to interact and move around during the class as we explore a wonderful range of tactile and exciting props, finger rhymes, action songs and sensory stories. These activities help babies to develop their cognitive, physical and emotional skills. These sessions will be themed anything from the circus to Frozen. Young children are given the opportunity to express themselves through drama activities, music and movement, role play, and storytelling. These activities will encourage and develop confidence and independence.
