Avant Theatre Workshops

Avant Theatre provides Theatre Education through various initiatives

Speech & Drama for Students

Children attend these classes once a week and are involved in a series of fun-filled learning activities which aim to develop ongoing confidence, self-esteem and skill in verbal communication. Our developmental drama program provides young children with unique opportunities to develop clear speech, fluent delivery and pleasing social skills. Children who mix well with others find it easier to make friends and adjust to new situations. They find school an enjoyable adventure! Our confidence building program helps to give them the skills to be participants in all aspects of their lives, able to ask questions, seek answers and share information with others.
