Zoo Adventure offers children who love animals and performing the chance to unleash their imaginations and go wild! A trip to the zoo will inspire new movement, performance skills and creative play as children learn to move and act like their favourite creatures...

This fun, creative course will bring out the inner performers in young children, building their confidence and improving their skills!

Children will use their voices, enjoy music and dancing (building rhythm and musicality, as they role-play different zoo animals and use storytelling to build an imaginary fantasy-land full of wild animals!
