Have fun in a supportive learning environment

The ‘Drama Stars’ course is a five-day workshop in which children get a chance to work with world-class instructors and professional actors from the UK. The course will be based around the three main disciplines of acting, dancing and singing. Being an active and hands-on learning experience, everyone gets a chance to try everything. The course will allow participants to learn new skills in a supportive and fun environment with tutors who know exactly what it means to perform on the biggest stages. The course is designed to be fast-paced, interactive, informative, collaborative and a huge amount of fun.

Learn life skills through performance

The transferable skills learnt through the ‘Drama Stars’ workshop include:

  • Public speaking- Through performance,, we can instil confident communication skills.
  • Empathy – The art of storytelling unlocks empathy, emotion and individuality. Collaboration – Performing brings people together as they collaborate to achieve a common goal.
  • Physical Activity – Performing is physically demanding and this vocational course will have children up on their feet, playing and exercising.
  • Creativity – Performing is a creative exercise and we include classes that encourage our ‘Drama Stars’ to think on their own feet and make new material from scratch.

Role Models is committed to social action. For every ten places booked, we offer one free place to a child who would not otherwise have access to our courses.

Course Breakdown Questions

Days 1-3.

The course is made up of three stations; ACTING, SINGING and DANCING. The children will cycle through these stations picking up a variety of skills. Below is an example outline of the activities that we offer. 

 

ACTING STATION

  • Voice Gym –  Whether you’re captaining a sports team or making a school presentation, it is essential to have an understanding of your voice. Voice Gym is a scrapbook of exercises used by West End Professionals every single day.
  • Make it up – A creative workshop in improvisation, allowing children to express their own personality as well as listening to other ideas around them. Guaranteed to have multiple laughter breaks!

 

SINGING STATION.

  • Warm up like Lady Gaga – All gathered around the piano, this is a fun and interactive group singing lesson where children break the ice with their voices and learn what it is to sing like a pop star.
  • All Together Now. A choral workshop where the group will learn to sing a catchy song in unison. Thinking about tune, rhythm and song dynamics. Working closely as a group they’ll be blending their voices into one sound.

 

DANCING STATION.

 

  • West End Workshop. This is where the ‘Drama Stars’ will be taught the actual choreography from a West End show by a West End Star. They will learn and perform a section of a world-famous musical theatre hit!
  • Music Video Takeover. During this session, we will create and film our very own music video based on an existing hit. This will include some pop and street elements giving the ‘Drama Stars’ a chance to try varied choreography.

 

Day 4 – Rehearsal Day 

All the groups will come together to start working on the final performance piece. They will need to remember and implement all that they’ve learnt over the last three days. We will work on a group narration piece, a group dance number and a group song which will make up a mini show for parents and friends to watch the next day.

 

Day  5 – Performance Day

Final preparations will take place for the climax of the course. We will have a dress rehearsal and do any last-minute practise that’s required before parents and friends arrive to see what we’ve been working on. Of course, the show will end to rapturous applause and we’ll take a big group photo before issuing well-earned ‘Drama Stars’ certificates.

While we hope to inspire the next Hugh Jackman or Anne Hathaway, this course is also about developing invaluable and transferable life skills. This course is designed for all children to experiment in a supportive and fun environment. Whilst it will help to nurture children with a natural performative flair, it will also encourage children to learn important communication and social skills.

1 Introduction

At the start of the course, you’ll be introduced to the ‘Drama Stars’ tutors. You’ll get a chance to ask them questions about the course and their experiences on the stage. We’ll run through the details of the classes we are taking and give you an outline of what we’re hoping to achieve with each one.

2 End-of-day Emails

At the end of the day, we’ll send out an e-mail with details of how the day went. We will include photos and video clips of what we’ve been working on so you can see your own ‘Drama Star’ in action.

3 Final Day Performance 

On the final day you’ll be invited to attend the ‘Drama Stars’ Showcase! Everyone who attended the course will be involved in an informal sharing session of what we’ve been up to over the week. You will see snippets from all three workshop stations before finishing the week with a bow, a presentation of certificates and a big group photograph on the stage.

4 Written report

Once the adrenaline from the showcase has slowly left our bodies the ‘Drama Stars’ tutors will be in touch with a personal report for your child. We’ll track their development over the week with observations we made about their involvement and progress throughout the different activities. It’s not every day that you get an individual report from West End stars!

When you purchase more than one course place, you will receive a £50 discount on each subsequent course place, i.e.
£50 discount if you purchase two course places in one transaction;
£100 discount if you purchase three course places in one transaction;
£150 discount if you purchase four course places in one transaction; and so on.

This means if you are booking for a sibling or planning ahead and booking multiple courses you can take advantage of this offer. Please note that for this discount to be applied all course places must be purchased at the same time (in one transaction) and all courses must be of the same type, e.g. day courses.

Yes we do! You can either book a standard day (10-3 or 10-4 for certain courses) or an extended day (8.30 until 6pm.) Our course content will only run between the hours of a standard day. Outside of these hours, one of our Creative Childcare Role Models will join the children to run extra-curricular games and activities.

You can select which days you extend based on your needs, as extended hours are charged per day. Please note: If you select an extended day, you can collect your children before 6pm, but will still be charged for the full day. An extended day will be charged at £25 per day per child. Please book a standard day at the checkout and then call us to add the extended day package on 0203 6377107 or email
