Summer Drama School 2016
1st – 5th August 2016
Drama Summer School at Giselle Academy offers children and young people an opportunity to work with inspirational teachers and actors in a fun packed week, and involves drama workshops, gaining acting skills and studying acting technique.
The weeks work culminates in a show for parents and friends on the Friday. The skills learned during Summer School expose students to different styles of acting and preparing for performance, for example, learning lines without scripts, improvisation and physical theatre.
Summer School is a great way to experience working with professionals, build confidence for performance and auditions, but, above all, to make friends and have fun!
