User Guide To Drama Classes

Drama is a reflection or representation of real life experiences mostly denoting the complexity of life involving love and tragedy. The most popular form of drama is theater or stage drama that originated in classical Greece, which is often a combination of music and dance. Drama has evolved and branched out into many forms such as opera, pantomime, and the modern form of movie and television.
People enrolling in drama classes may also have different purposes and goals.

Most parents prefer to enroll their children in a drama class during the summer vacation to develop their youngsters' confidence and socialization skills. Others enroll their kids with a serious intent to hone the child's talent in acting. Also, there are people who take theater passionately and wanting to take acting as their profession. The latter usually requires a more advance and intensive classes and training.
As mentioned above, there are different forms of drama therefore there are different drama classes available.

Among the most popular are screen and stage acting. Most classes cover a more general approach in teaching the art of drama. Others provide a more specialized program according to the students preference be it on theatre acting, television or movie. Some professional acting schools even offer classes for directing, stage management, lights design, and stage design, among others.

For beginners, short-course acting classes or drama workshops are suitable to be taken to allow the novice to test the waters. This is more appropriate to young people who, at an early stage are yet to determine their interest. However, most kids enjoy going to acting workshops as these are made to be fun and interactive in order address their short attention span and interest. Most drama classes for kids are developed in such a way that kids are allowed to play while incorporating the basic concepts of theater or drama acting.

Most experienced actors and actresses in theater also called thespians are keen on improving and honing their skills. Individuals who belong to this group, more often than not, require constant acting lessons and workshops that are usually facilitated by well-known directors and professional actors. For those who desire a more adept training, a Bachelor of Arts degree is also offered in universities. Some universities are known to be good in stage performances while some are specialize in movie and television. However, there are quite a few that provide an equal amount of focus on screen acting as it does for theatre.
Courses and tuition for drama classes may vary according to:

  • Type of class (E.g. Theatre; Screen: Television or Movie; Pantomime; Opera; Musical Theatre, etc.)
  • Proficiency Level (E.g. Basic, Advance, Kids, Teens, Adults, etc.)
  • Instructor (Professional and well-known actors and directors may charge more expensive tuition compared to experienced theatre enthusiasts.)
  • Duration of course / class (Some classes may take longer than others, though there are also short courses that offer more intensive training)
  • Season (Most drama companies and organizations hold drama classes during summer vacation which are offered at a discounted price)

In Australia, there are drama / theatre communities and organizations that hold regular trainings. In Western Australia, most groups if not all are under the Independent Theatre Association (Australia) or ITA, which is the umbrella organization for community, amateur and independent theatre organizations.
