Drama workshop for KIDS Strut

Image result for kids strut

Tonight we delivered an hour-long drama workshop for the charity KIDS Strut during their Tuesday’s after-school club.

The group consisted of 12 young people, aged between 8 and 14, all with additional needs.

We played a few games: ‘Grandmother’s Footsteps’ and ‘Pass the Clap’, we played with finger puppets, we dressed up, improvised and we role-played. With a loose and flexible structure we allowed for the children to lead at points, and to listen and respond at others.

Tonight confidence, self-esteem, socialisation and communication were the main skills being worked on in a subtle and fun way – we had many laughs, lots of smiles, and lots of hugs when we left.

Session with KIDS Strut (Lincoln based charity for disabled children)

Today we did a 3 hour session in which we incorporated interactive games, role-play with dressing up, improvisation, and a sensory experience with a parachute!

The children’s ages span from 8-16 and abilities were varied. We had lots and lots of fun, there is nothing more wonderful than a child’s laughter during play and drama – the possibilities during imaginative play are endless!

Testimonials

Kids Strut booked Tiptoe Theatre for an activity day and ALL of the young people had a fabulous time. The session was very well planned and allowed flexibility to enable ALL of the young people to participate. I would highly recommend.
