WE ARE OUT & ABOUT IN SCHOOLS & THE COMMUNITY
“The musical had students receive the largest number of High Distinctions for the UTAS course out of all the Colleges that year”
The ExitLeft team offer a wide range of programs for schools, early learning centres and community organisations. From running music programs for toddlers, teaching performance skills or producing a full-length school musical, we can tailor a program to suit your needs.
SOME OF OUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE
As a magical half hour of music and fun for both parents and little ones, our captivating Toddler Tunes music programs are perfect for your school, childcare centre, playgroup or Launch into Learning sessions. It is a great introduction to music and in particular the program has been developed to work on speech development and play-based learning outcomes for under fours. If you coordinate or teach within the early childhood education framework we would love to discuss bringing our music specialists to your class.
PERFORMANCE CLASSES & SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
As the performance specialists we are often asked into schools, community groups and businesses to provide expert training in music, drama and performance skills. Some of our recent clients include dance schools looking to improve their competition pieces, accent training for high school drama classes, choral programs, and performance skills training for community groups. We also offer an hour-long version of our outstanding performance classes as a one-off or regular class tailored to your school or community group.
HOLIDAY PROGRAMS & ENTERTAINMENT
ExitLeft offers a range of holiday programs suitable for all ages. Activities can be tailored to suit – from mini-shows and entertainment that is perfect for events or activity days, to music and drama workshops, discos, storytelling and themed characters. You can see us at the Taste of Tasmania Kids in the Park, the great Easter Egg Hunt, the Wooden Boats Festival and regularly around town as part of the City of Hobart’s activities for kids throughout the year.
The Academy has been a key part of an innovative education program run in Hobart’s northern suburbs, bringing the community together to help children develop their social skills. The ‘All Stars Club’ at Wellington Alliance Primary Schools is one of the first Tasmanian projects to focus on social development by giving children the opportunity to take part in fun after-school activities at no cost. As part of the program the ExitLeft Performance Academy runs performance classes at Glenorchy Primary School and has seen confidence increase in the students over the past two years.
BOOK AN INSTANT PRODUCTION TEAM
We contract our production team out to schools, colleges and community groups for shows and events. Our team can provide the total package or just one element of putting on a show, including: direction, musical direction, choreography, production management, stage management, graphic design & marketing, concept creation, writing, and music.
In early 2015 I met with Ian Williams to talk about an idea that I had in relation to providing opportunities for children in the Glenorchy Municipality. Ian immediately offered his support. The All Stars Program is grateful for the ongoing support from ExitLeft Performance Academy. It has been a privilege to see the growth in the children's singing skills, acting skills as well as listening, following directions and how to work as a team in a fun and engaging environment. New friendships, confidence, new skills, sharing ideas and a whole lot of fun!!
