Practice skill-based learning led by industry experts across a range of performing arts disciplines. NIDA courses for grade 11 and 12 students are designed to support and inspire young people at any stage of their creative development.
Learning framework
Each term we focus on a specific area of performance practice to ensure students have a varied experience and learn a range of essential creative skills.
Students are able to join us at the start of any term during the year.
NIDA Open Drama courses are designed across a four term structure within the following learning framework:
Term one
Improvisation and Performance Craft
Term two
Voice and Movement
Term three
Devising and Contemporary Performance
Term four
Script Work and Staging
Term 1, 2020: Told by an Idiot
Utilise a variety of improvisation techniques to create characters, develop plots and tackle the challenges you encounter in creating unique and compelling stories. Focusing on the performer, the material, and the audience, this course invites each participant to script, rehearse and perform extraordinary tales under the direction of a NIDA specialist.
Course components
Spontaneity: Explore plot, structure and narrative through improvisation.
Character Development: Improvise and sustain a truthful/believable character.
Collaboration: Collaborate with your peers as you work together to explore different improvisation styles.
Term 2, 2020: 3 Characters in Search of an Actor
Extend your range as an actor as you explore and apply a variety of vocal and physical techniques to a selection of monologues. Re-work and fuse these speeches to create a dynamic solo performance where you transform from one character to another before an audience. This course will include a session on voice and accent.

Contemporary Practice: Extend knowledge of contemporary performance practices.
Writing for Performance: Structure and perform scripted scenes from improvised material
Term 4, 2020: Brave New World
