We've had a fantastic start to the 2016/17 season! Christina Bianco's Diva Moments show sold out and Dotty The Dragon has been performing to packed audiences on it's opening weekend. We're looking forward to our next shows and below is some information on what's on in geneva at Simply Theatre between now and the end of the year.
When people traditionally think about enrolling for a performing arts classes, it has usually been because their child loves either one or all of acting, singing and dancing. Their child loves to perform at home, to family and friends, and a performing arts course is a great outlet to express and develop this passion.
“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon
We all want our children to be happy, but what can we do about it?
If you have children and you are embarking on moving to geneva, you’ll be concerned about how this will affect them. There is good news; The HSBC Expat Explorer Survey shows that, out of 39 expat countries, Switzerland ranks 4th for Quality of Life and 10th overall.
The life skills developed in acting and performing arts classes take children further than just the stage and screen. Children who attend acting classes refine their kinesthetic skills, artistic development abilities, cognitive skills, as well as their social and interpersonal communication skills.
Acting classes help children improve their self-confidence and public speaking skills. Children who attend courses in acting are skilled at working in groups and cooperative learning activities. These children use self-discipline, accept feedback easily, and think creatively.
How will all this affect your child? When your child is in school and has to complete a group project, he/she will be better at listening to the other group members and completing the assignment through a consensus-based approach. When the next presentation is assigned, your child will have the self-confidence and vocal control to deliver a speech that will engage the audience. Later on down the road, when your child is ready to start a career, he/she will be prepared for interviews, team projects, and communicating effectively with his or her team.
