Every Saturday AYC has creative and performing arts classes for females at our centre. Our Saturday morning classes are be filled with fun, creativity, performances, skill building and opportunities to share and expand your talents in a safe female-only environment. The program will help with confidence, self esteem, public speaking skills, communication and be a great way to make new friends. These skills will help young females in their future and to achieve their dreams.
If you love to perform or have always wanted to experience the world of drama, acting and theatre we encourage you to come along, you can even bring a friend or two. We will explore improvisation, movement, voice work, masks, mime, monologues, skits, comedy, storytelling, clowning, interpretive dance, poetry and more. Maybe you just want to have some fun, improve your craft, build your confidence or make new friends – the AYC INSPIRE creative and preforming arts classes can do all of that! If you require assistance getting to and from the centre by our female bus driver please let us know.
