Durban Actors Studio have developed CAPS aligned Life Skills Creative Arts lesson plans for Foundation and Intermediate phase learners as well as Senior Phase, Grade 7 to 9, Creative Arts CAPS lesson plans for the Drama and Dance syllabus.

All plans include the practical and written assessments and deliver to the required topic expectations.

By designing and developing our own lesson plans, in alignment with the national syllabus, and adding our experience as specialist educators in the field of performance, we are perfectly positioned to run your schools’ Creative Arts education programme.

Durban Actors Studio has been contracted to run specialised drama “In-School” programmes for: Penzance Primary School, Gelofte, Hillcrest Primary School, Durban Preparatory High School and Embury College.

Your school has the ability to access our specialised team of drama educators on a termly or annual basis. Our time is contracted to schools on a half hour or full hour basis during the normal school day.
