Inspiring tomorrow’s leaders
Tall Poppies Performance Teachers Collective is running a two-hour workshop on July 7 from 2-4pm which will involve lots of fun with drama and performance skills.
The workshop, which finishes with a short performance, is for 5-12 year olds.
‘‘We are wanting to give kids the opportunity to explore what it is like to be part of a drama class. It is also an opportunity for those busy kids to try something that they don’t normally have time to do,’’ says Tall Poppies founder and director Del Costello.
Participants will explore a new skill, develop confidence and have someholiday fun.
‘‘Kids will get an idea of the collaborative way we work, the basic skills of performance and the power of people to tell great stories through drama,’’ Del says.
Those who enjoy the experience can register for regular classes at Tall Poppies, which aims to inspire confidence.
‘‘Being able to share your ideas and feelings is a critical skill for success and the Tall Poppies programmes allow individuals to develop at their own pace while working collaboratively,’’ Del explains.
‘‘Communication skills are paramount today, and working with drama is a great way to build these. We also work with talent development – mapping pathways to success for the talented performers. Competitions and examinations are all an option.’’
Del, who has been working with kids in drama for over 20 years, says she has the world’s best job.
‘‘I get to work all day in the field of drama and communication, which I am passionate about, and get great reward from helping kids to reach their potential.’’
Tall Poppies’ numerous success stories range from the shy boy who became a champion public speaker, to students who have gone onto broadcasting school and drama schools, or become eloquent lawyers, journalists and teachers.
