inhibitions quickly. Working closely on vital Communication skills such as listening, concentration, projection, expression, clarity and diction, this is a fun way of helping Students to develop strong, healthy, confident Voices for both on stage and in everyday life.
Create & Explore: Our drama section, where children explore their imaginations and embark on high-energy, thrilling adventures.

New, This Summer - Adults Acting &
Laughter Therapy Classes for 18+
Who doesn't love to laugh! Sometimes though when life just gets you down it's hard to even force a smile some days. Laughter not only provides a full-scale workout for your muscles, it unleashes a rush of stress-busting endorphins. What's more, your brain can't distinguish between real and fake laughter - any giggle will do! The therapeutic effects of laughter have been clinically studied since the 70s, but Dr Madan Kataria - who developed laughter yoga in Mumbai - is credited with bringing laughter therapy into the mainstream. Kataria set up the first laughter club in 1995. There are now more than 5,000 laughter clubs worldwide. We're SO excited to be bringing our twist on Laughter Therapy to the people of Fife. In our fun-filled sessions, we'll combine a physical warm-up, yoga-based breathing and
stretches, followed by a range of acting improvisations designed to get you giggling. Laughter doesn't come easily to everyone,
but luckily the body can't actually distinguish between real and fake laughter. So faking it has the same beneficial effect!
If you're undecided, remember this: Children laugh about 400 times a day, whereas adults manage a miserable 15.
So drop in and say "Hi!" to find out how our Acting & Laughter Therapy classes could do wonders
for your self-esteem, happiness and sense of well-being.
