Drama classes de­light youth

Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

Boys and girls aged seven to nine gath­ered at Dampier Com­mu­nity Hall last week for a free three-day drama work­shop with the IF Foun­da­tion Dampier Per­form­ing Arts Academy.

More than 20 chil­dren par­tic­i­pated in per­for­mance ac­tiv­i­ties con­ducted by or­gan­is­ers and men­tors Ari­ana Pa­ganetti and David Wil­liams.

Whether they loved the stage or had never per­formed for an au­di­ence be­fore, all the chil­dren en­thu­si­as­ti­cally joined in the role plays, freeze­frame games and im­pro­vi­sa­tion ac­tiv­i­ties, which had a fo­cus on friend­ship and anti-bul­ly­ing.

Two other three-day work­shops were held for chil­dren, aged four to six and 10 to 17.
