''StageCraft Ireland provide workshops for schools''
Physical Theatre as part of Physical Education for the whole school
Of all subjects commonly taught in school, physical education has the greatest potential to create lifelong physical and intellectual improvements in students. Physical education classes also offer a unique way to integrate lessons and promote creativity, while giving students guidance and an opportunity to improve kinetic learning.
Juggling promotes hand-eye coordination, concentration and individuality and our week long program gives each class in your school the opportunity to partake in many daring and dexterous physical activities in a fun filled and entertaining environment. The PE teacher also learns the skills and how to integrate juggling into regular sessions. Equipment packages will be available to purchase if your school decides you would like to keep up any of the skills learned trough out the week.
Stilt Walking for transition year students
Stilt Walking is one of our more intimate workshops as it requires smaller groups and very specialized equipment. We will take one or several small groups on a jigamaree journey from small to tall in your very own school. Starting on 2 foot trainers, participants will learn to leave the ground floor behind and confidently stride high in just one week!
Movement from mellow to mammoth and melodic to the magnificent
This great session is open to primary and secondary students. Participants will move, groove, shake, twist, turn and twirl their way through a week long activity exploring different styles of dance with hand percussion and props such as scarfs, wings, flags, poi, staff and jingly bits galore. Children and teachers will learn to make their own materials and how to use them.
Booming Balloon Sculptures
For 5th and 6th class primary school students only. This is the ideal workshop if you have a construction theme for your class. We will teach your group how to mold, sculpt and shape hundreds of balloons into a model or models of the schools choice. The models last for up to two weeks when kept in good condition and stored behind something. They can reach the size of the ceiling and can be used as part of another project your school is undertaking. Any theme is possible!!
At the start of each new year we offer fantastic week long winter programs at off peak prices which can be booked for any time in the second week in January right up to the second week in March.
