Inspired by our work with West End shows and the LAMDA Exam syllabus, Theatre Workout's after-school clubs are available for both primary and secondary schools across London, tailored for children from Reception through to Key Stage 5.
Courses provide extra-curricular support to student's in-school learning, complimenting or contrasting the rest of their curriculum. Clubs enhance coursework studies, performance projects, and preparation for LAMDA, GCSE, A-Level and other grade programmes.
As with Theatre Workout's weekly classes, after-school clubs are performance based and cover the bredth of theatre, such as acting, singing, dance, movement, puppetry, mask and more. We combine taught activities with student-led practice, leading in most cases to a performance at the end of each term.
A typical club:
Lasting 60-90 minutes, most clubs feature age-appropriate theatre activities which inform the development of performance projects, combining taught lessons and student-led practice. This gives students ownership of the work they create, building confidence and engagement.
