Stage It!

Education and Performance in Live Theatre for ages 10 to adults!


Theatre workshops have come to Dance Habit! Join our newest recruit (and theatre extraordinaire) Claire Haywood as she launches six-week Stage It! courses at Dance Habit. Designed to impart a knowledge and appreciation of the various areas of live theatrical production, all students will come away from Stage It! rehearsals with more confidence and understanding of the wonderful world of theatre.

Want to be a Director, Choreographer, Costume Designer, Technician, Set Designer or Performer? We’ve got you covered! 

The most exciting element of this course is that students will be encouraged to discover their own individual interests. Theatre is not just about performing and in Stage It! participants will gain skills and experience both on stage and behind the scenes. We acknowledge and value the multifaceted world of theatre:

  • Performing
  • Directing
  • Choreography
  • Costume Design
  • Tech (Sound and Lighting)
  • Sets and Props

Over the course of six weeks, students will prepare and produce a mini musical. Be ready to gain skills in:

  • Audition techniques;
  • Production traineeship roles;
  • Character work;
  • Relationship dynamics between actors and directors;
  • Scene work;
  • Song and dance (singing is optional);
  • Muscle and script memory;
  • Technical elements;
  • Rehearsal commitment and team work;
  • and of course the all-important live performance!

No additional fees apply for costumes or set design as students will be encouraged to get creative, use items from home and up-cycle where possible. This also ensures performers do not rely on pre-made, purchased costumes to portray a character, but instead need to develop the required performance skills.

Places are strictly limited – don’t delay! Book online now

An annual $25 registration and insurance fee applies to new students
