Drama Classes For Pre-schoolers

Apart from introducing them to the vibrancy of arts in early childhood, the benefits of drama activities for 3 -5 year old preschoolers are quite many. The attention span of this particular age group is very short, so drama plays keen them engaged while teaching them expressive language. Drama activities also create a comfortable place for children who are shy. It encourages them to participate in these activities thus increasing their level of confidence as they go on. Our Saturday kindy program is filled with lots of exciting activities designed to nurture the artistic skills as well as communication skills which will help the child , not only for now, but will carry them through to the future.
Classes are on Saturdays at 11.30am to 12pm. To enrol your child, please call 08093561000.

Here's Why HOG Drama Online Class Portal Is Best

Duncan Rice, Director of Helen O’Grady Drama Academy Africa, stated recently why Facebook is the preferred platform to run the HOG Drama Academy Online Classes especially during this coronavirus pandemic. “Helen O’Grady Drama Academy runs classes throughout Africa for children and adults. During the early stages of the virus lockdown in China and Italy, the Academy quickly made plans to launch its ONLINE platform using the safe and secure Facebook Learning Groups portal."
“Children learn lessons such as mime, movement, speech training and improvisation by experts in the fields of performance arts. The course is broken into clear units. Students have the satisfaction of ticking off each unit as it is completed. The teacher is very clearly able to monitor the student’s progress with the video content. We already have many future stars in the making!” During this drama course students are encouraged to send video assignments back for assessment and monitoring of their level of performance of the task. For example, a child may finish the movement section and be required to send back a video to show a short dance. Or they may complete a play with the teacher. Parents can film the child improvising with the teacher. Unlike, live classes, parents of younger children from 3-9 years are also encouraged to become involved in the learning process.
