Description

Our weekend drama classes are held over three nine-week terms. There are four different locations where you can attend classes: Downtown Toronto,  EtobicokeNorth York and The Beaches.

Led by professional artist educators with extensive teaching experience, students will build core theatre skills in movement, voice and character. Confidence and creative expression are developed through drama exercises and improvisation. Students will be encouraged to express their unique ideas in new ways. In the Spring term, they will collaborate to create their own play. Enroll in all three sessions before the start of the Fall term and not only make the most of our skill-based cumulative curriculum but receive a 10% discount!
