The Trainers:

The Sessions over the 8 months covers a range of skills related to the craft of theatre by highly skilled trainers, who themselves are Trinity Grade 8 Distinction & Diploma Holders in Drama & Speech. Our Young trainers are from different walks of life – including Engineers, doctors & Chartered Accountants coming together for spreading the passion of theatre to youngsters.

The Sessions:

Sessions per batch are an hour – once every week depending on the timetable of the centre the student chooses. It is a homogeneous bunch with a co-ordinator for each batch which aims to provide quality theatre based learning solutions with an approved and systematic grammar to the craft to youngsters in the age group of 6 to 14.

The batches are divided into the following;

Junior (Foundation) – Student of Classes 1 to 3- here we cover basic theatrical elements of Body Language & Voice modulation, content to form exercises that breaks the ice, simulations/improvisations to kindle the imaginations ,storytelling, property & set making including special sessions on shadow puppetry and folk arts.
