Courses - Yourstage Drama - dance and drama classes for 3-16 year olds

Courses

Yourstage Drama offers term-time Saturday drama classes. We also run Easter and Summer holiday courses. All of our courses encourage confidence through creativity.

We use games and improvisation to teach new skills in drama and scene-development, music, dance and singing in a fun way.

End-of-term drama and dance show

The children get involved in creating a show with dance, drama and singing, performed for family at the end of the course. It is an exciting opportunity for them to perform on a big stage with their Yourstage friends. The older groups spend two terms working towards a big production which will be performed in July. In 2018 the production we will be performing is Bugsy Malone.

Ten-week Ealing drama and dance courses with term-time weekly classes at St Augustine’s Priory, Hillcrest Road, Ealing, W5. Our non-exam based dance training combines jazz and modern disciplines, different techniques and fun routines.

Scenes, along with the dance routines form part of the end-of-term show.

For our Easter courses this year, the 3-5 year olds (Yourstage Tots) will be exploring a Witches and Wizards theme while the 6-16 year olds (Yourstage Toos and Teens) delve into Enchanted Worlds.

Our Tots will have cauldrons of fun casting spells, singing songs from fantastic witchy musicals and doing their best Munchkins dance. The week will be made up of games, creative activities and reading their favourite books, as well as dancing, singing and performing to their hearts’ content! A short performance for parents will be staged at 11.30am on Friday 6th April.

Our older children will be devising their own original piece of theatre inspired by the idea of Enchanted Worlds. Exploring settings such as magical gardens, spooky forests and haunted castles, the children will create characters, work on dances and write their own scenes ready for a performance on Friday 6th April at 4.30pm.

The Yourstage Holidays Easter course is an opportunity for children of 6 to 16 to work together in producing an original piece of theatre. The different skills of each child will be drawn upon and every child will have the opportunity to show what they can do. We improvise and put together scenes, dances and the odd song for our show.

We also run Yourstage Tots courses at the same time (half days, 9am to 1pm), usually to the same theme as the older groups but with more focus on make-believe games. The tots show takes place at 12.30pm on the last day of the Ealing drama course.
