We are a community interest company based in the heart of Pudsey at the Robin Lane Wellbeing centre and  provide workshops and events within surrounding areas.

IPTC encourages skills and talent from all backgrounds, whether you are an aspiring actor, singer or performer or prefer the backstage environment from costume/make up to set design and promotional work.

5pm-6pm CHILDREN'S WORKSHOP (6-18) £4

6.15pm - 7.15pm ADULT WORKSHOP £3

(membership fees apply)

 

We have started our first children's drama workshop. This will be an exciting opportunity to help develop confidence and new skills in the performing arts. As always we take into consideration those that experience mental health struggles such as anxiety and depression. 

Do you have a young teenager that you feel could benefit from confidence building??

Are you feeling isolated and lonely due to your anxieties and social boundaries and are aged between 11-18 years old ??

Then this could be the perfect weekly activity for you. Come along and give it a try. Be surrounded by young people who feel exactly like you do and build on coping skills and strategies. 

Each children's workshop will include various drama and performance activities to develop and build on confidence. Activities such as:

  • Character work

  • Expression

  • Freedom of movement

  • Script work and development

  • Improvisation

  • Mime and music

  • Group engagment

  • Physical theatre

  • Vocal projection 

    along with many more performance activities.

 

The aim is to allow each child to feel comfortable in their surroundings and explore their own style and performance preference, whether that be scripted work or improvisation, comedy or dramatic monologues. Not only will this provide focus and something to work towards but there will also be a natural development of friendships in the group allowing the group to develop and work together, support each other, build on confidence and learn ways to cope in a social environment. It is also a great way to work with mental health awareness with young people which is becoming a rising issue within society. Our goal is to provide a service where young people can begin to feel comfortable about their anxieties and mental health whilst also gaining skills and knowledge that can be adapted and used in their future.
