Dramatic Arts For Youth Program

Dramatic Arts for Youth Program (DAFY), has been developed in 2016 by Drama teacher, Aquila Russell. Students from Years 9-12  have the opportunity to join the Dramatic Arts group and develop their knowledge and confidence in the dramatic arts and performance styles. This program will focus on script writing, directing, acting with movement and language and encourage students to be resilient and committed to a group.

Young performers also develop long term friendships, while learning how to support and encourage others with a safe, judgement free environment. The groups focus changes regularly between performance and creative script writing, with an emphasis on the language needed to be prepared for Senior Drama.

All new students are welcome to join our team, as long as they like to be challenged and inspired to be a creative thinker! This program will be held in the Dance & Drama studio on a Wednesday afternoon, starting at 3:15 pm and end at 4:15 pm.
