Magic Monday’s are a great way to start your week and a perfect companion class for our ever so popular Tuesday drama class with Amber Virtue and Rubystar. Magic Mondays will focus on skill development, creative expression and choreography through; Drama games and Prop association, Karaoke (everybody loves to sing), Stage craft and sequencing (practicing introductions and finales, using the space and engaging your audience) and Magic and circus tricks (gross motor skills, accepting new challenges and discovering /developing new entertaining skills).

When students feel ready they can perform their solo and group pieces on Tuesdays to their favourite music so there is a cross over and connection with Tuesday’s show class. Both classes are designed to cater for all abilities. Whether you want to participate or observe, you will leave with a smile.
