Classes in Stage Combat and Movement will offer new skills and professional qualifications. Students will study Stage Combat and have the opportunity to take an exam with the Academy of Performance Combat giving them a professional qualification recognised by Equity.
Students will learn to create characters and explore text for performance. They will work on monologues, duologues and scenes for performance as part of the end of term showcase. They will also have the option of taking a group LAMDA acting exam performing the scenes they have created and getting a qualification in acting.
Devising and improvisation lessons will give students outstanding new skills and confidence. Students will work with a professional improvisation teacher to create scenes and sketches. Performance opportunities at improv nights will offer students the chance to share their new skills and develop confidence.
This term at Foundations we’ll be focusing on discovering Reading’s most incredible stories! We’ll be researching true tales from around the town and devising the stories to bring them back to life, discovering some weird and wonderful characters along the way.
