Level 1 Drama Full Course
This course focuses on learners becoming increasingly literate in Drama. Our focus for the year will be developing communication skills through drama practice. We will perform scripts, participate in lively discussions, devise scenes and pieces of theatre, watch live theatrical performances – all of which show and explore how we can communicate through the powerful tool of performance.
This course develops skills, knowledge and confidence which are applicable to learners in their other school subjects and their lives beyond school.
It is a great course to take for those who are interested in increasing confidence and creativity, as well as having some fun!
Recommended Prior Learning
Learners should be open to performing in front of others (in a group or in pairs) as a safe and supportive working environment will be established.
