Drama Workshop

Rainbows Drama Course

Today saw the start of 1st Finchfield Rainbows 4 week drama course. Start of a little journey for them really as some of the rainbows have never encountered performance or drama before. So it was all very exciting for them and also very exciting for myself. The last time I was there doing anything particularly drama based was a few years back when I took a puppet project there. (Newhampton Gang) Was a college TIE project. Basically we had to create a piece of touring theatre that was "Theatre In Education"

It went really well today. I just spent most of my time getting to know the group and getting them a little focused where drama is concerned. We spent most of the time building the 3 C's that I like to use when working with children and performance (This was a skill gained when working with the TIE company "Urban Voice)


These are three words that I feel are very important when becoming an actor or teaching drama. Also, the three C's really help with team building and helping to lose inhibitions.
All in all a good first session really. 3 more to go before the Parents presentation. Should be a good few weeks.
I shall keep you updated.
