‘There is little that gives children greater pleasure than when a grown-up lets himself down to their level and plays with them as an equal.’

Sigmund Freud

After School group shot

I currently run three after-school performing arts clubs each week at Halstow Primary School in Greenwich. At these clubs, children take part in distinct sessions of singing, dance and drama, working towards a showcase for parents at the end of each term.

Theatre and drama games are an excellent way of complementing an events or education programme, engaging children of all ages, ethnicities and abilities. My sessions can be created specifically for a particular theme or topic, depending on your wishes.

The underlying principles are always the same, however, with an emphasis on learning through taking part, exploration and storytelling, gaining new skills and building on them. As children get older, moving from Key Stage One to Key Stage Two, the emphasis moves from simple movement and physical drama games involving copying, mime and play to exercises involving greater teamwork, concentration and exploration of issues, where children can really give their creativity free rein.

Whether you are looking for a one-off session, or a series of events that build each week; and whether they are for primary or secondary-aged children, my workshop sessions incorporating drama games, music, dance and performance can perfectly complement your education or events programme.

Please do speak to me if you wish to ask any questions or to check my availability for a particular event. See the Contact page for ways to get in touch.

‘Sara’s sessions are much loved by the children who really enjoy the range of drama, games and activities that she organises Sara is passionate about inspiring and motivating children to take part in these activities. They learn so much but have great fun at the same time. They work together and are fully engaged and excited by the classes. They develop self-confidence, independence as well as a love of performing.’
