There is something for all ages groups at SAYarts.

Is your child a natural performer, or an aspiring actor? South Australian Youth Arts (SAYarts) has a huge array of classes starting this term for kids of all ages.

SAYarts has classes for children from 5 years right up to young adults. Their goal is to encourage children to have as much fun as they can whilst helping students to learn their craft, plus encourage older students to refine their craft.

Established in 2014, SAYarts is a collective of tutors, directors, writers and arts professionals who seek to continue the strong tradition of theatre-making in Adelaide’s youth community and beyond.

With child safety guidelines in place, SAYarts employ Assistant Tutors for all classes that cater to children, and all staff are police checked.

Classes include Little Tackers for ages 5-8 years, and Acting Fundamentals for ages 8-12 years.

For those who are serious about acting, students aged 12-24 can join the KINDRED International Collaboration, or the Mighty Stories Ensemble, which you can read more about below.

Little Tackers
WHERE: Unley and Mitcham
WHEN: Wednesday and Saturday during term time
AGES: 5-8 years (Unley 5-7 years)

Little Tackers is an exciting introduction to the theatre for your little performer!

Though play, games galore, craft, costumes and theatre-making, children will build confidence, resilience, social and teambuilding skills, plus improve their communication. They will also work towards a pint-sized performance outcome!

Acting Fundamentals
WHERE: Payneham Community Centre, 374 Payneham Rd, Payneham
WHEN: Wednesdays from 5th February at 4:30pm
AGES: 8-12 years

Young, aspiring actors and kids looking for ‘their thing’ can take part in Acting Fundamentals, a class facilitated by experienced tutor Alan Grace.

Children will learn the basics of script preparation, stagecraft, theatre etiquette, and improvisation with a focus on techniques for building character and blocking scenes.

Students will be expected to learn lines, take direction, and work towards a performance outcome.

KINDRED International Collaboration
WHERE: Hawthorn Community Centre, 5 Frimley Grove Hawthorn
AGE: 12-24 years
WHEN: Wednesdays to 8th April from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

A cultural exchange project between SAYarts and renowned Scottish Theatre Company, Macrobert Young Company, KINDRED will ask the gnarly questions, feature haunting themes, gritty responses and timely words.

Work with award-winning theatre-maker Claire Glenn and internationally acclaimed playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer to forge conversations across continents that feed our souls and fuel our actions.

Those with the ability to commit to rehearsals, and an international collaboration with a performance and travel outcome are encouraged to express an interest.

Through improvisation, character development and devising, students will develop their story through to performance, installation, or immersive experience.

Students will work towards creating a piece of augmented verbatim theatre inspired by Greta Thunberg and the political activism of young people across the globe.

This class requires rehearsal commitments and work outside of the allotted class time expected. There will be a high level of commitment required in Term 3 in particular, with performance held in October 2020.

Book your child's place today and watch their confidence soar as they learn new skills, make new friends and have fun!
