What's it all about?
Our EAS Youth classes are a safe and fun environment for children and young adults from P5 all the way to S6 to grow in confidence through acting.
We look to encourage, while challenging all our students. We explore a range of different dramatic techniques, character building, role play, improvisation, storytelling, performance confidence, communication & artistic skills.
We also will look at screen & stage acting, puppetry, interactive engagement, mime, props and costume making, stage make up, devising and creating.We work alongside our students helping them bring to life stories that they will create.
In doing so we will specifically focus on characterisation, improvising from stimuli and experimenting with different physical and vocal techniques. They will also look at classical texts and learn about practitioners and how their styles have influenced the arts industry today.
January-June Term: Stage Performance resulting in a public performance.
August-December Term: Screen Acting resulting in an edited filmed piece.
More Term Information:
Our younger classes will be introduced to Shakespeare, including some classic Shakespearean insults, what status means, and understanding the times when Shakespeare lived.
We will then move on to screen, introducing film and TV scripts and filming small scenes for them to have at the end of term.
Our older classes will also begin with Shakespeare, exploring the text and how to approach it, and learning a group monologue.
We will then move on to screen, with the students devising their own 1-2 minute scripts, which will be filmed for them to have at the end of term.
We are organising a screening for the end of term to showcase all of the student’s fantastic work so keep you eyes peeled for your invite! This term promises to be a fun one, with a wide amount of activities to explore.
