Preschool Speech & Drama Programme 2022 by The Actors Studio Academy @ klpac
What is it?
The semester-based, year-long programme introduces students to the magic of storytelling, exercising the imagination, performing for an audience in a group and by themselves, and aims to nurture every students’ sense of self, relations to one another and the world, and the expressions of the two through Speech & Drama.
“When I read great literature, great drama, speeches, or sermons, I feel that the human mind has not achieved anything greater than the ability to share feelings and thoughts through language.” – James Earl Jones
How does it work?
The preschool Speech & Drama @ TAS Academy programme is catered for students 3 – 6 years of age, with three semesters in a year. Our teachers and students will explore the evocative language and performance of poetry, dialogue and scenes, song and music, creative use of the body, even creating their own sketches and plays. Theatre games to build relationships between classmates, to encourage group play, self-confidence, and awareness, is a fundamental pillar to our approach. We strive to create an environment that nourishes and encourages our students’ innate creative potentials.
“Like art, revolutions come from combining what exists into what has never existed before.” – Gloria Steinem
What about this pandemic?
Having worked through the covid-19 pandemic of 2020, our teaching team is prepared and aim to work adaptively and flexibly. The syllabus and approach to our Speech & Drama Programme for 2022 is ready to be taught either online or in-person. We always aim to have classes face-to-face with the appropriate SOPs in place, but in the event of lockdowns, and safety concerns, lessons and classes will transition into the online space, to which our teaching team is prepared and have specifically designed their syllabus for.
