Play in Arts (4 to 6 years old)
Growing through fun and artistic games
Using Arts as the way and play as the method, the children learn imperceptibly in Play in Arts.
– Mdm Goh Lay Kuan, Co-founder and Artistic Advisor of The Theatre Practice
In Play in Arts, children hone their sense of movement, rhythm and musicality. Through songs, stories, craft works, exercises and play, the children develop their independence, as well as how to be good team players. In play, both freely and with structure, they exercise self-discipline and play with pleasure. Uninhibited in creativity and imagination, they celebrate the rhythm in their heart and move to the music of their soul!
Story Banq (7 to 9 years old)
Exploring in stories
The children first listen to stories, then make connections by relating the stories to their own personal experiences; thereby sparking off different ideas and thoughts. With these inspirations, they go on to create their own unique and colourful stories.
– Ms Wong May Lan, Advocacy Advisor of The Theatre Practice
Stories are a form of wealth which permeates and enriches human experiences.
In the Story Banq classes, children engage in activities such as body movement, games, storytelling and adaptation. They develop their thought processes, critical questioning, expression and creativity. In the process, the children accumulate different insights and learning of the human conditions, language, culture and history. No longer do stories just entertain; it is a way to grow a person through the development of skills and cultivation of personality.
Drama Class (10 to 12 years old)
Learning through imitation and creation
Culture and art bring the children close to life and keep them grounded as they grow.
– Mdm Goh Lay Kuan, Co-founder and Artistic Advisor, The Theatre Practice
Life inspires stories and Art imitates life.
In Drama Class, stories are told through different artistic approaches that explore and reflect everyday life. The theatre is the children’s platform, where it happens, and theatre tools are used to develop the children’s abilities and personal growth. In the class, children learn to use the accumulated abilities of their whole body, voice and imagination to create performance works. Through independent thinking and interpretation, the children deepen their understanding of the world they live in.
