The Youth Arts Centre took part in a National Association of Youth Theatre workshop weekend in Wellingborough in Northants. The weekend was designed to encourage imaginative thinking and is a fun-packed weekend that celebrated youth theatre and brought young people together. There were opportunities to participate in high quality workshops, including musical theatre, clowning, film making and Shakespeare given by theatre professionals from all ver the country who worked with the young people to crate theatre of the different kind.
“Attending these workshops is essential for any young person with an interest in any of the performing arts” said Head of Youth Arts Fiona Helleur. “Our membership of the National Association of Youth Theatres give us access to theatre professionals from everywhere with skills in everything. It’s an opportunity to work with their peers with people they would perhaps never meet. It is important to the YAC that their members are given the opportunity to meet other young people, make friends and have fun doing what they best.”
In addition to running a packed programme of art, music, singing, acting and dancing sessions with qualified, experienced and DBS checked staff, the YAV prides itself on broadening the horizons of tis members with the its national and international connections.
