We are very excited to welcome students into the theatre spaces for face to face classes in Term 4. To ensure the safety of all participants and facilitators, we will be asking students to help by ensuring hygiene and safe distances are kept. You can request a full copy of our COVID safe plan if you wish but here are the highlights:
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or concerns on firstname.lastname@example.org. Enrolments are open now online. Please email if you have any trouble as our box office is operating under limited hours.
We so look forward to welcoming you back into our space and seeing your faces and feeling your enthusiasm bring life to the Theatre once again.
The Empire Youth Arts Team.
Thanks from the Empire Youth Arts team – Ari, Jeanette and Nicky.
EMPIRE YOUTH ARTS VIRTUAL CODE OF CONDUCT
Participants will endeavour to abide by the Empire Youth arts principals of quality, collaboration, professionalism and respect. Participants will engage in activities with a positive, inclusive and open mindset, with full understanding of the impact their behaviour and attitude has on the quality of the online learning experience for all, and the work achieved. Participants and parent/guardians will be notified if they are in breach of the code - including any behaviour online or that which continues into offline spaces which may reflect poorly on participants or activities - and will lead to exclusion from further classes.
Empire Youth Arts aims to enrich and empower the young people of the Toowoomba region through providing regular drama workshops. Through drama games, exercises and performance-based tasks run by highly qualified and experienced facilitators, participants will learn drama, communication and teamwork skills, whilst connecting with other drama fans and developing performers.
IMPORTANT: In order to secure your enrolment, an enrolment form MUST be completed in addition to payment. Only enrolled students will be allowed to participate in class. We will be using Zoom as our method of delivery for classes. Participants will need an internet connection and to best participate with facilitators, a device with video and microphone capabilities.
Please note each class is capped to 25 participants.
