DRAMA CLUB - KIDS (6 - 16 yrs)

The emphasis of our classes is on vocational development with good training. We aim to build confidence and communication skills.​

Kids Drama Club for 6 – 16 years. (Split in to age categories)

Whatever career your children decide that they want to do, it is best to be able to offer them support from a young age. If your child decides that they would like to have a career in the performing arts then it is a great idea to get them involved with an after school drama club or a summer holiday drama workshop )holiday club). These extra-curricular activities can help to provide your children with an excellent base on which to base their future career. So let’s look at some of the major benefits of signing your children up to a dance or drama group.

Improving your child’s SKILLS
Attending a drama club will help your child to improve their skill set. Drama clubs will teach children to play games and do exercises that can help them to improve their acting and performance skills. These games should also help them to be able to build on their own creative talents. Skills like these are not limited to the initial exercises, so they will be able to use them in a number a different performance circumstances, even outside of the drama group. They will be able to draw on these games and drama exercises to help them to create realistic emotions in their future acting performances.

Encouraging a Hobby
Encouraging children to pursue their favourite hobby can help to keep them active and will help them to engage their brain outside of the classroom. They will also be able to practice and improve their skills outside of drama club, using the techniques that they have been taught during their sessions.

Being involved in an out of school club or societies can help also to stop children from engaging in anti-social behaviours which are often brought about by boredom.

Networking and Socialisation
Drama clubs provide an excellent opportunity for children to network and develop their social skills. They are likely to develop new friendships as a result of being part of a group. Being able to interact well with others is an important skill for children, whichever career that they choose. However, communication is especially import in the performing arts. Everyone from the stage hands to the lead performer needs to be able to communicate properly with the rest of their team. The communication skills that they will learn during their time at drama club will help them in their future careers.

Drama is an excellent way to help your child to develop their ability to express themselves. Children can struggle to understand and express emotion, unless they are allowed to do it in different ways. Acting and performing can provide ideal opportunities for your children to express themselves in non-verbal ways. Improving self-expression can lead to happier and healthier children.

MAPA will make sure that we keep up to date with the latest acting opportunities with having Majestic International Model and Casting agency, we will to let you know if any opportunities present themselves which would be suitable for your child. This means that you won’t have to spend all day searching for auditions and casting calls due to having our own agency. MAPA are keen to get roles for our students (if this is what they want). MAPA will try to give students as many opportunities as possible!

MAPA strives to create exciting opportunities for our students. Performances are a big part of MAPA to allow students to showcase their talents. We sometimes will invite industry professionals to the classes.
