For Adults:

This theater workshop will allow you to develop and improve your ability to speak French and your  self-expression skills before an audience through acting as well as to deepen your knowledge about French culture.

Each theatre class will be divided into two parts: warm-up and exercises followed by scene works from the French-speaking theatre repertoire. Through warm-up and exercises, we will be exploring various drama techniques, working on listening and speaking, the body, the space as well as the relationship between partners. 

The course will offer you an immersion in the French language. Particular care will be given to pronunciation, fluidity of expression, interpretation and creativity.

 For Children:

The Drama club offers the children an initiation to drama practice through verbal and non-verbal activities. The class will be compounded by (physical and vocal) warm-up and various exercices which come from diverse practices (mime, improvisation, writing, theatre, …) to develop creativity and encourage expression of oneself. The class will be conducted in French.
