Learning process

Young participants learn to act, sing, dance, improvise, construct costumes, apply make-up, and design sets. The program runs from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm daily, Monday to Friday for two weeks. We provide our students with experienced instructors that work in theatre, dance and art industry in Canada and Europe.

Theatre experience

The purpose of the program is to nurture in children understanding and appreciation of the theatre. Throughout the course children will learn theory and practice of the theatre. The program is also designed to discover the unique talent in every child and improve his or her speech-art, self-confidence, communication skills, and ability to present on public. By linking the participatory elements of music, voice/vocal, movement/dance, set and costume design to the process, we are taking children on a journey to discover the fundamental rituals to creating live theatre.

The company presents a final production of an original play by the end of the session. Parents, extended family, and members of the community are invited to attend.
