At Route 39 Academy, we agree! Wednesday afternoon is Performance afternoon. Until school finishes at 5pm, students are involved in a range of activities covering music, dance and drama.
Their participation helps develop the learning habits which also play such a pivotal role in the classroom. And the results are clear to see. In the first year of Route 39 Academy, students wrote, directed, choreographed and performed two shows for the enjoyment of friends and family.
We have been lucky to have had some coaching input from Hollywood actor, BAFTA winner, and Route 39 Fellow, Dominic West (above). Dominic ran some workshops at the Academy. "Meeting a successful, respected actor makes the students' acting ambitions more tangible. He’s been a real inspiration to these students," commented drama teacher, Miss Smart.
