A MidiKids Acting workshop is a wonderful and nurturing learning experience for children! We cover a variety of areas including Physical Theatre, Shakespeare, Script Work, Improvisation, Devising, Musical Theatre (including dance) Comedy and more. In a MidiKids workshop we start to explore a wider range of acting skills and techniques, encouraging children to step out of their comfort zone and enhance their imagination and creativity, while still continuing to build their confidence. Our innovative curriculum provides our MidiKids with well-rounded tuition in the performing arts.
We have an amazing team of qualified practitioners providing opportunities in every workshop for your child to immerse themselves in the wonder of theatre and performance. Through our bespoke Acting activities children are able to express their individuality, grow in confidence and make new friends.
All of our Lead Practitioners have trained at prestigious Performing Arts Schools or have an abundance of theatrical experience, or both! We have a rigorous recruitment process where all practitioners are subject to comprehensive background checks, including Enhanced DBS checks. They are also required to complete an online child protection course.
