Group Classes


Groups should contain no fewer than 3 performers.


1. Group Mime

Mime provides us with the core skills required for any performance. It develops a physical awareness that aids the external expression of the inner character. Working within a group further focuses the concentration and encourages discipline and co-operation.

We provide a set title for your interpretation.

2. Group Acting

Own choice. Any scene from a play or dramatization of a novel may be used in this class. Group Acting is always challenging but, as well as being creatively satisfying, teaches pupils the value of shared responsibility.

Pupils may enter all other appropriate classes in Junior Open Section

3. Group Speaking

Set poem or  own choice. The poem to be spoken from memory. In Group Speaking movement is optional and minimal hand props allowed. Sound effects/music can be used with discretion, bearing in mind the spoken word should predominate.
