D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective’s educational program has been developed to bring out the best in the students and ensure that their learning journey takes place on as many different levels as possible.
Our in-school shows, workshops and artist residencies offer a holistic approach that integrates movement, speech, breathing, human emotions, social situations, moral dilemmas, embodied creative writing/text, ensemble work and the relationship with the performance space.
Our aim is not only to offer in-school theatre experiences that are closely aligned with the Australian Curriculum but also to create opportunities for young people to develop their body awareness, self-confidence, self-expression, social connections, critical thinking and skills such as leadership, communication, collaboration, problem-solving and adaptability.
Drama trains young people’s understanding of the world, empowering them to perceive themselves and others in a more attentive, dynamic and genuine way.
The Education Program developed by D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective is of high calibre and serves the needs of the education sector. The workshop facilitator has a deep understanding of the material being taught and how to teach that material to students with differing learning modalities. (Teacher at Noosa Pengari Steiner School)
