THEATRE PROGRAMS

Our theatre programs are speaking-focused classes where theatre and movement inspire students to use English as a tool for creative expression. During the class we develop stories, play games in wacky costumes, sing songs and use puppets in an English immersion environment. Role-playing games and team story building stimulates students' imaginations and inspire children and teens to express themselves in English.

 

These classes give students the opportunity to deepen their language learning process, especially with regards to pronunciation, speech and comprehension. 

We offer four different theatre programs adapted to the specific needs of each age group:

BUDDING ACTORS (1r - 2n)

RISING STARS (2n - 5è)

COMPANY KIDS (6è - 1r d'ESO)

TEEN ACTORS (13 - 17 year olds)

Please see below for more information on each of these programs or contact us if you have any questions.

BUDDING ACTORS

7 to 9 year olds (1r - 2n)

Our youngest actors primarily use theatre games to increase their English language comprehension and confidence with the language. Through fun, simple skits the students practise speaking in full sentences and getting the repetition they need to acquire this knowledge without it feeling repetitive at all! 

DAYS:

Thursdays: 17.45-19h 

RISING STARS 

9 to 12 year olds (2n - 5è)

As students begin to acquire more confidence in their English abilities we slowly begin to introduce more complex concepts, allowing them space to improvise or create scenes themselves. These groups still focus primarily on games to continue to acquire more language skills and vocab, while at the same time allowing ways for them to add on language they are learning. Scripts are kept to a minimum so as not to create bad pronunciation habits when reading is introduced too early, however we do begin to use some scripts as we see these little stars begin to spread their acting wings! 

DAYS:

Tuesdays: 17.45-19.00 (2nd-4th grade)

 

Wednesdays: 17.45-19h (3rd– 5th grade)

NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS GROUP:

Fridays: 17.45-19h (2nd-6th grade)

COMPANY KIDS


Time to step into the spotlight! By this age our little actors are ready to deepen their abilities and knowledge, and we encourage this through more complex skits, character studies, improv games and script building. Our focus is still on fluency and pronunciation, and reading and writing is introduced naturally, allowing the students to actively find their voice and interest, deepening their English knowledge and acting abilities.  

DAYS:

Mondays: 18-19.15 

NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS GROUP:

Fridays: 17.45-19h (2nd-6th grade)

12 to 14 year olds (5è - 1r d'ESO)

TEEN ACTORS

13 to 17 YEAR OLDS
*open to native and non-native English speaking teens

This program is designed for teenagers who want to practice their English through theatre. During the class we develop stories and work on skits that allow the students to use their English in an environment of creative expression. We will develop scripts, play theatre games, work on specific theatre techniques and prepare shows in a dynamic, English-immersion environment.

This class is an opportunity for students to develop both their language and theatre skills. In this program we work on all aspects of the English language: speaking, listening, reading and writing. And we have so much fun doing it!

DAYS:

Wednesdays: 19.15 - 20.30
