Drama

Aims of Boogie Bear Music & Drama sessions

We aim to offer a warm and stimulating environment where all the children are encouraged to feel free and confident as to reach their full potential.

The classes aim to build trusting relationships with the educators as to build confidence and a sense of wellbeing before engaging and absorbing any information.

To achieve this, classes are interactive, authentic, and are taught with passion, fun and lots of magic! It is our responsibility as educators to understand how children develop and learn. Children do not learn in the same way. It is therefore the educator’s responsibility to be an effective diagnostician of children’s interests and abilities.

All Boogie bear teachers possess a positive, lively, calm and confident approach when teaching. All Boogie Bear staff undergo intensive training and are all DBS checked and hold their liability insurance and a music licence.
