The aim of the drama classes for children is for them to participate in a permanent creative process whch enables them to acquire knowledge which will help them develop their own creative and inventive capacity.
At the same time, it will reinforce group work, foster confidence and encourage participation. Via drama, the children will learn more about themselves and about others, whilst they are enjoying themselves and having fun.
The drama classes for children are divided up into three different cycles, according to age. Each cycle consists of different groups, depending on the children’s year of birth.
The enrolment period for the drama classes for children takes place during the months of May and June.
During the year there will be various performances and classes within the different groups that will be open to the families. These activities are the following:
