The ability to capture an audience’s attention, hold their focus and keep them engaged is an admirable skill in a young person, and one way to hone that skill is in debating.

Advance your debating skills by coming together with other high-school debaters in this half-day workshop. Explore strategies for preparing and presenting a case with conviction, techniques for drawing on credible sources, and tools for rebuttal and impromptu speaking.

You’ll engage in a debate with limited planning time and receive individual feedback on matter, method and manner, as well as resources on persuasive speaking, techniques for rebuttal and references for accessing news and current affairs.

Parents, this workshop is ideal for students who are ready to extend their skills in case preparation, delivery, and rebuttal. It furthers the speaking skills introduced to students in weekly Voice and Acting™ classes. Special focus will be given to clarity of speech, volume and vocal dynamics relevant to debating. This workshop is recommended for senior students in weekly Voice and Acting™ classes.

Shakespeare’s plays have been around for years, perhaps it’s time to shake them up!? In this workshop you’ll explore Shakespeare’s classic stories and reframe them in a modern context. Ignite your imagination as you engage in The Bard’s work in new ways, connecting the characters and their plights to a life in the 21st Century.

Parents, your teen will develop skills in voice, classical text, character analysis, storytelling, play-building and performance. They’ll fall in love with Shakespeare’s whacky and twisted stories by looking at classic texts through a contemporary lens. Option to film scenes during the workshop to share with family and friends.

    Home away from home
    All week my boys are asking when they will be back at Viva they love it that much. The showcase is always a highlight but they love everything about it especially holiday workshops. I'm really glad the teachers have helped my boys fall in love with drama and develop a skill for life.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 09-01-2020:
    Thanks Jess for leaving a review! Your boys are a part of the furniture at Viva!

    My boys beg to do this!
    My boys now 9 and 6 come every holidays and absolutly love it. Kristen and Carrissa are so patient and brilliant at engaging my boys and keeping them on task. They come home exhausted and exhilarated at the end of the day. I love the fact that they talk all the way home about their day! I highly recommend Viva voice holiday workshops.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 14-02-2018:
    Thanks for leaving a review Clare! We love working with your boys, it's great they always have such a good time!

    Viva Voice Holiday Workshops
    The only organised holiday activity both my kids absolutely love to do (no complaints!). Viva Voice curate age appropriate workshops with lots of variety and opportunity for every child. The mini-performances at the end are a great way to showcase the children's efforts. Highly recommended.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 20-07-2017:
    It was great to have your kids back these holidays Victoria! Thanks for the review. We hope to see them back again soon.

    My daughter loved doing the third day of drama last Friday. She was annoyed that she didn't do the full three days. We will definitely be considering doing 3 days next term.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 20-07-2017:
    Thanks for the feedback - even the kids who do three days seem to wish it went for longer! We'd love to see your daughter back for more next holidays.

    A wonderful creative learning opportunity
    The 3 day workshop was a first for my son, I wasn't too sure how he'd go as it was at a new place and no familiar faces around. But when I picked him up after the first day, he was all smiles and gave it a 60 out of 10 he loved it that much! Amy was brilliant, her kindness, skill and experience in working with children was obvious and my son quickly warmed to her. Days later my son is still reciting quotes from the performance and talking of his time spent with new friends he met there. I have no hesitation in recommending Viva Voice and am planning to register again for the next school holiday workshop.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 20-07-2017:
    Sandy, it was great to welcome your son and see him thrive in the creative space over the week. Thanks for taking a moment to review. Looking forward to see you both again next holidays!

    Holiday Shakespeare Workshop
    I loved the Shakespeare workshop at Viva Voice. Kristen (our teacher) made the workshop fun and we got to play lots of really addictive group games. I also learned a lot of different words that Shakespeare used and interesting facts about Shakespeare plays. I will definitely be back for another workshop.
    Answer from Viva Voice on 20-07-2017:
    It was wonderful to watch your knowledge of Shakespeare grow during the workshop! Glad to hear you had another great week. Thanks for posting a review!

    Inspiring !
    My daughters describe these workshops as awesome! Well organised and executed to entertain and challenge the kids. My usually very shy daughter fully participated in the end of workshop performance. Great work!
    Answer from Viva Voice on 20-07-2017:
    So glad to hear your daughters enjoy the workshops! Thanks for taking a moment to review. Looking forward to having the girls back again soon!
