Creative Edge has been offering drama classes/acting lessons in Abbotsford since 1991. We keep the atmosphere fun, while challenging the students to become good actors.
Drama classes are divided into 6 age groups:
KINDERDRAMA - Born in 2011
ACT UP THEATRE - AGES 6-8
Junior DRAMA - Ages 9-10
Intermediate DRAMA - Ages 11-12
Senior DRAMA - Ages 13-15
TEEN ACTING - Ages 15+
The younger drama students class time involves fun drama games, dress up roll playing, and story drama, all which make for a fun introduction to children's theatre for 4 to 7 year olds.
The middle and older age groups focus more on theatre sports, script reading, acting for the camera and stage presentation.
Drama classes have the opportunity to act on stage at the Abbotsford Arts Centre during our year end shows in June.
