About Us

What is Act Out?

Act Out are English Theatre Workshops for children from 4 to 12 years old.

Our method of teaching English is through Theatre.

Theatre is a wonderful educational tool when it comes to helping children with confidence and self-esteem. In a spontaneous and enjoyable manner, theatre connects children with the world of the Arts. Theatre also welcomes self-reflection and expression by enabling children to laugh, cry, and experience the different emotions that life has to offer. At the same time, theatre allows children to think, participate and enjoy the world around them. Our areas of focus are interpersonal communication skills and individual expression. In Act Out, children learn to overcome shyness and improve their concentration. All workshops are in English thus giving children the opportunity to practice and further their knowledge of the language in an atmosphere full of fun activities and games.

 

In Act Out, we play theatre games based on improvisation, teamwork, concentration, music, and dance so that children can learn and also have fun. Our main objective is to improve children’s confidence when speaking English, their concentration and show them what they are capable of achieving.

 

At the end of each semester, the children perform an original musical in English so their parents and friends can come and see for themselves how much their children have learned.

 

We invite your children to come in and Act Out!
