Each theatrical class at Happy Theater is a combination of movement theater, puppet theater, storytelling, improvisation and visual arts activities.

Our young actors become better listeners and learn to appreciate each other’s ideas, they gain confidence in speaking and performing in front of others, they learn to work together as a team, to feed off one another ideas and to put their creativity into action.

Creative Theater – Children from 4 to 6 years old. Students explore creative theater, where characters can be made out of anything – spoons, pillows, socks and our own body. In our magic world hands dance with feet, shoulders play soccer with noses and left ears argue with right knees! Using drama, music, movement and visual arts activities we create stories, sets and puppets; and we invite parents to our observation classes in the end of each session, where we all become part of one big theatrical game.

History of Theater and Art – Children from 7 to 10 years old. Students learn history of theater and art through acting, movement, visual arts, storytelling, and improvisation activities. Each session is devoted to one period of Western or Eastern theatrical history. While exploring the traditions of theatrical periods as well as visual art, architecture and music of different historic epochs, students will work on sets, costumes, characters and scripts to produce their own shows.
