Bop till you Drop School Holiday Program

Bop till you Drop School Holiday Program
21/01/2020 - 22/01/2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Bop till you Drop are running Performing Arts Workshops in the January School Holidays. Our workshops are designed for children aged 5-12years. These programs are educational with professional teachers who will gently encourage and teach your child new skills in DANCING, SINGING, ACTING, plus craft, cooking and science to break up the action packed day.

There are 6 action-packed classes per day, which aim at building self-esteem in your child. We allow the children to be part of the creative process rather than dictating our ideas. This helps build their self-confidence and gives them a sense of pride with their new found talents. The children will perform in a concert on the last day to show you everything they have learnt. They will also be awarded a graduation certificate. The concert is an important part of building confidence and their public speaking skills. Also, we want them to walk away with a big sense of satisfaction knowing they worked towards something and accomplished it.

CONCERT – for parents will be held at 3.00pm on the second day. We heard you and we want to make your work day easier with a later pick up.
