Learning drama at home can be tricky. There are distractions, it feels strange, and often you don’t know where to start! Here’s a list of tricks and tips put together from Marian St Theatre for Young People’s Teaching Artists for doing drama at home. This can be with exercises that you’ve downloaded (see our free ‘downloadable drama’), or with online classes. It might also be with exercises you’re trying doing with the kids! Making a play at home can be great fun, and a way to get the whole family involved.
Advice From Our Teaching Artists
- Have fun, and look silly – confidence is the fearlessness to take risks. Don't be afraid to fail - what's the worst that can happen? The floor won't open up and eat you!
- Make a dedicated space – if your child is nervous, find somewhere private (if possible) where they can try them without anyone there
- Rituals and Routine - tell your creativity what time to show up by doing creative activities at the same time each day. Try playing some music at the start to help you feel expansive, exploratory...excited.
- Music - Try playing some music at the start to help you feel expansive, exploratory...excited. Make this part of the ritual
- Listen to yourself - follow whatever is speaking to you right now. Drama is a lot about feeling into your body/voice/experience and finding ways to express that.
