Just finished giving a drama workshop three days in a row to Havo students at the Haarlemmermeer Lyceum in Hoofddorp.
The challenge in these workshops is to channel the enthusiasm and energy of young teenagers and maintain discipline and focus at the same time. The pitfall of these types of workshops is that they can be seen as just a fun filled activity without the full appreciation on the part of the students that drama is an art form and acting is a craft.
Hence, the workshop leader is always looking for ways in which to ignite an excitement for the art form while simultaneously maintaining order. Keeping concentration is a big challenge for any teenager and at the end of the day one just hopes that perhaps a seed has been planted that could be the genesis of further interest, curiosity and exploration of this wonderful art form for the next generation.
