Dramaworks is fun! Dramaworks gives the best gift of all……Confidence!!
Exciting creative drama classes run by professional experienced teachers. Drama classes run on Saturday morning and on Wednesday after school at London Road Methodist Church, Horsham, West Sussex.
The classes and drama workshops are aimed at all ages from 4 years to 18 years and teach stage skills and confidence for life. We teach London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art grades from ages 6 upwards. Our LAMDA courses are an ideal way for older students from 16 to 18 to gain extra UCAS points for University entry with grades being equal to up to 65 UCAS points. We also offer audition coaching for Drama School entry.
Half term news
We are so excited about our students’ development this term. We have been working on creating believable characters through embodiment and movement with our middle group. This culminated last week with a scene based on spooky characters in a wax museum which inevitably come to life when the lights are switched off……….
We welcomed our younger drama students to a trial session last Saturday with a Bear Hunt adventure with all kinds of movement and a great big scream at the end ! They also enjoyed learning a song with signs as well as becoming lions with very big paws and long manes!
The oldest group (12 to 17) have learnt stage combat techniques to create realistic illusions of fight scenes. They have also worked on seven levels of tension to help them with their acting of LAMDA pieces.
We look forward to our special Halloween session on 27 October when members of ShockOktober will teach movement and physicalisation of spooky characters as well as offering to demonstrate make up techniques to students who wish to become ghoulish characters for Halloween ! This session is 10 pounds for 2 hours from 12 to 2 pm.
We-wish all our students a happy half term. No normal session on. 27 October but back on 3rd November !
This year the results were fabulous and showed real progression for our students which demonstrates the difference Dramaworks has made to their achievement levels. Many gained results way beyond their age with some students being awarded Grade 5 at distinction and merit at 12 years of age!!
Congratulations to workshop leader and ex student Megan Bewley who is performing in Chichester’s Festival Theatre’s production of ‘Beauty and The Beast’ – book your tickets soon!
