SIK Kids Drama Classes

Home/SIK Kids Drama Classes

At SIK our children’s drama classes combines theater games, improv, costume play, and character creation with music and theater related art projects. Students form their own “theatre company” for the term, write scenes, and short plays with their director, learn songs and dance, and are introduced to different styles of theater through engaging games. Our kids classes take place on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons depending on the child’s age and choice of studio location.

We believe in building performers not egos, turning show-offs into show-ready actors, and nurturing the performer in all children regardless of their natural talent. Our classes are designed to instill a passion for the Arts along with the discipline required to be a good performer. Along the way we build confidence, vocal tehnique, and movement skills, and stress the importance of being able to work as part of a team.

Please Note – SIK Kids drama classes are not rehearsals for, or focused on building, a specific show. We want your investment in your child’s education to be fully realized, and when rehearsing a show children will spend more time sitting, waiting for their ‘moment’ than being involved. Our classes are all inclusive, engaging, activity based, skill building sessions.

From January 2019 we will be offering classes from our Adan and Salwa studios. Tim Waddell, SIK’s Artistic Director, will continue to lead the Adan classes, and Ms Carly Stark will lead the Salwa classes.

You can join the waiting list for the January 2019 term now. 
As we are committed to small, focused, class sizes our register for each term fills up fast. Please complete the form below (no commitment) and we will contact you as soon as we start building class lists for the new term.
