Foundation Grades 1-3 for Ages 7-12
At Grades 1-3 learners are taught to produce a performance which demonstrates understanding and thoughtful interpretation with a free and fluent delivery. They are learning a sense of spontaneity, and conscious awareness of audience, sustaining these qualities to the end. The learners should be able to adopt and sustain a role using space creatively and effectively while employing both physical and vocal resources to engage the audience through performance. The learners develop awareness of the performance demands, the meaning and the quality of the chosen material.
