About the Programme

Spanning nine months, the TAP is an after-school programme for children between 8 to 18 years of age. We firmly believe our techniques help children to overcome inhibitions, to communicate with confidence, to speak clearly and understand body language – tools that will help and prepare them for the future, irrespective of what profession they choose.

Our programme will cover modules on:

  1. Writing
  2. Text (reading, comprehension and performance)
  3. Body Awareness
  4. Voice Training
  5. Performance techniques, including public speaking techniques.
  6. Includes the Trinity College London* grade assessment as an opportunity to demonstrate performance skills to an external assessment by a visiting examiner.

Additionally, we offer optional classes in script writing and play reading on weekends to encourage children to come together and devise their own works, be it directing a scene from a play or performing an original short one-act play. Children will also be taken to watch 2 plays in Bangalore to enhance their appreciation of drama.

 

*The Trinity College London assessment is offered in Speech and DramaPerformance Arts and Communication Skills.

  1. The Speech and Drama course is best suited for children who love reading and who are interested in understanding and interpreting texts for performance. The Performance Arts stream is ideal for children who are interested in music, dance, fine art and wish to integrate those interests with drama.
  2. Communication Skills is for children who are interested in learning to deliver talks and present ideas, opinions and information effectively. While Drama & Performance Arts involve reading, interpretation and performance of poems, prose and excerpts from plays, Communication Skills develops abilities to persuade, to negotiate and communicate effectively in a variety of contexts.
