Drama Club for Year 6 and 7

at Shaftesbury Arts Centre

In February and March 2015 a series of Drama Workshops will be run at Shaftesbury Arts Centre, for students in Year 6, Year 7, and Year 8 and above. The theme for this term will be Clown and Comedy skills, and we will work on mime, physical theatre, comedy roles and Commedia dell Arte.

These workshops will be directed by Dave Hollis, an award winning professional Drama teacher, theatre director and published playwright. Dave Hollis was Head of Drama at a large state school, and runs regular weekend Theatre courses for Able, Gifted and Talented students in the South West of England. Dave's teaching was credited as 'Outstanding' in two OFSTED reports and he has full CRB clearance.

If you prefer you can use the first meeting as a taster session to let you find out more about us and how we work, and then pay 62 to join us when you attend the second session on February 22nd.


On Sundays from 3pm to 5pm. The dates for the five work sessions are:- Sunday February 8th, February 22nd, March 1st, March 15th and March 22nd. We will present our work to parents and friends during our last meeting on March 22nd.
