In January 2013 we launched the new Performing Arts Club on Thursday evenings (6pm-9pm). It is led by Simeon with help from Luke, Alex, Denai, Shannon and Daphen and is spread across four main areas:
- The spoken Word
Aim: A�To give young artists a chance to record their original work
To help them to set up online video sites
Film a music video for young the artist. To then broadcast video on their online account.
Provide opportunities for performance e.g. at Swift (NGT) Talent Showcase
Activities:A�Songwriting, studio time, rehearsals & perhaps some dance routines.A�Vocal production by either singing or rapping.
NB. We have permission to convert one of the ground floor rooms at the Swift into a small studio and we will be raising the funds to do this.
Activities: acting, filming, stage setting, script writing & performing with the aim of one full production each year.
Aims: Produce a drama, comedy or episode to perform these. A�To film it and broadcast it on social networks.
Create designs on old/new clothes to sell or keep.
Activities: T-shirt printing, sewing, designs sketches & catwalks.
Gain some experience in selling own products if interested. Present designs for the swift showcase (catwalk). We may develop T Shirts as a business.
POETRY AND RAP
Provide support for creatively using the spoken word and this will be done by a series of informal workshops.
We Aim is to perform something from all of these groups at the annual Swift (NGT) TalentA� Showcase.
Members will be encouraged to upload and engage with social network sites created by the youth the swift club, to promote the swift & youth performances.
