Adult Mime and Improvisation Workshop – Building confidence through drama with Emily Hastings


Spectrum Days, Old Coach Road, Droitwich Spa

7.00 - 9.30 pm

Cost: £5 for Members of Droitwich Arts Network. £10 for Non-members. No refunds unless the event is cancelled.

A maximum of 12 people can participate in this workshop.

The aim of this workshop is for people to come together, meet new people and have a lot of fun. Whether you’ve always enjoyed acting or have never tried it but would like to give something new a try then this is the evening for you. The session will be very relaxed and informal: we will start with a warm-up and some drama based icebreakers. Following this we will do a number of fun and rewarding mime, improvisation and public speaking exercises both as a whole group and in smaller teams. The exercises will be designed to enhance confidence in both the workplace and in personal situations. We will also look at techniques to overcome nerves in situations such as job interviews, important meetings and any other circumstances which may be applicable to individuals.

Emily Hastings studied drama from a young age and undertook a number of LAMDA examinations including the ALAM where she obtained a diploma in 1997 which qualified her to teach drama privately. Emily also has a BA Hons degree in Performing Arts (2003).  She has experience of working with children and adults in all areas of drama.
