ADULT RECREATIONAL DRAMA CLASSES - STARTING APRIL BOOK NOW
BY Michele Williams | 20-Mar-2017
“Drama With A Difference” is one of Australia’s leading independent drama schools, and has been operating for over twenty years. It is the launching pad of many successful actors, but is equally committed to students who wish to do drama classes for recreational purposes. We run a recreational class for adults; some of whom are thinking about taking acting further at some stage, and most of whom have no desire to leave their day jobs.
Most of the students have established working lives, and come to the classes for a variety of reasons - to meet like - minded people, increase self - confidence and self - esteem, re-experience and/or discover their creativity, or simply have fun. Some find that drama classes help them at work, when they have to do upfront presentations and similar types of activities. Most of all, drama classes are a wonderful form of stress release. Recreational students constantly report that they feel that coming to our drama classes is like coming to a place where they can be free to be themselves without worrying about what others think.
We teach in a nurturing manner, and make sure that the environment is safe for everyone. The emphasis is very much on personal best, and the atmosphere is non-competitive. The class will be presenting an in-house performance, but it is one that will be stress free. If students need to take their scripts on stage with them, then that will be fine. It is simply an evening where participants are free to invite their friends and family along to see some of the things they’ve been doing in class. This performance will take place under theatre lights, and will give the group something to work towards. The classes take place every Thursday evening from 7.30pm - 9.30pm from our venue in Kew.
