Ages of the children?
To begin with, we are aiming these classes at children aged 6 - 12, but if you feel like your children are maturity level is appropriate - then they are very welcome to join!
Your children do not need to have experience performing, just a good standard of English and a strong internet connection!
What are the benefits of the online courses?
We aim to improve childrens' confidence and online communication skills through fun activities, theatre projects, quizzes, competitions and games. We want children to not only have fun whilst at home but also to learn how to behave in a safe manner online.
How will the British Theatre School ensure a safe environment for learning?
As we are launching this new project beginning in April 2020, we are only working with our small, trusted team of actors. Safeguarding is always a priority and our first few weeks of online courses will only be taught by our main team.
Our staff will never ask for personal information such as contact details for students or parents
What will I need to prepare?
Each week, you will receive an E-mail before your course begins letting you know what materials you will need, such as pens, paper and anything else for the course.
Where will my children need to be?
A room which has a strong internet connection. Use the website Speedtest to check your internet speed - a download speed of 50Mbps or higher is perfect!
A large room such as a living room is ideal. Please try to connect your computer to a large TV by using a HDMI cable (Your children may know how to do this!) - The larger the screen, the more effective and productive the classes will be!
Can parents take part or watch?
Of course parents can take part! Parents can also use the 'Record' button on Zoom to record the entire lesson.
We know that parents will want to feel comfortable with the lessons before leaving their children alone, so you are welcome to stay as long as you like!
Do my children need to be confident / extroverted / have acting experience?
Not at all! The whole point of the online lessons is for children to improve their confidence, online social skills and performance capabilities. All levels of ability are welcome.
Our friendly team have years of experience in bringing out the best in children's personalities.
