Drama Classes Ivanhoe

Drama Classes Ivanhoe, Melbourne

Are you trying to find the best drama classes for your child in Ivanhoe? Then you have come to the right place.

Once you have researched the available options, be sure to ask yourself these 3 questions to ensure you find the best drama classes in Ivanhoe:

1. Are you getting the best teachers? Look at their qualifications and skills at teaching speech and drama to groups of kids. Ask if the teachers are registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching and if they are accredited Trinity Guildhall or AMEB Speech & Drama teachers. Also check the qualifications of the person who sets the class plans. The class or curriculum plans are equally as important as the teacher teaching them. Tick both of these boxes and you will be onto a good thing.

2. Are the classes well structured? It is more likely that well-structured classes will deliver better learning outcomes over time. For example, if a drama program advertises that they may help your child develop public speaking skills, it may pay to specifically ask them how these public speaking skills are planned and structured throughout the year. You could also enquire how the program aligns with the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS) or the Australian Curriculum. Many programs have the children working on scripts or plays over a full term and therefore have less time to focus on learning a wider set of new skills. Other programs spend more time learning and practicing a wider range of new skills whilst still incorporating script and scene work. If you are looking for something that will not only be a fun and creative outlet for your child, but will also help accelerate their learning of practical skills, then this is worth considering during your search!

3. Will your child enjoy themselves and have fun? When a child has fun, their learning outcomes are often much higher as they are often more engaged and energised. You will get a feel for a programme by looking at their website, speaking to their principal or attending a trial class.
