Come and study acting in London at KKCL! We offer weekly courses in drama with a complete focus on performance. During the workshop you will learn different dramatic techniques, strategies, exercises and games. You will also spend much of your time in acting rehearsals (incorporating elements of singing and dancing), all in preparation for a high-quality theatre performance at the end of the week, entirely in English.
Drama Department at KKCL
As Head of Drama at KKCL, Daniel Zappi organises and runs the drama workshops for students at our Harrow centre and summer residences. The courses we provide are tailored for each specific group and include performances from the works of Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and Geoffrey Chaucer amongst others.
Daniel started his journey when he founded the Oxford World Theatre company to adapt Shakespeare for international students to perform in English. In four years he brought more than 7000 students of all ages and backgrounds onto the stage from Europe and further afield. Having worked extensively teaching drama and CLIL with the Chain Foundation, Daniel is well placed to run the KKCL drama department.
Drama Workshop combined with Go Create! English
The combination of the Drama Workshop and the Go Create! English programme will result in a full and intensive week that will benefit the students immensely and give them a wholly integrated experience. Whereas Go Create! English focuses on students utilising the English language to do creativity-based projects such as filmmaking, radio, or music, the Drama Workshop is built on a performance-based methodology.
Go Create! English is overseen by qualified native English teachers and the Drama Workshop is taught by industry professionals. A typical week of Go Create! is made up of 15 hours of lessons and the Drama Workshop is also 15 hours, making a total of 30 hours of English and drama in a week plus performance.
