Training

Preliminary class

The Oratory Foundation instills in every child the truth that he/she is an instrument of purpose.

At the preliminary level, students between the ages of 7 – 10 years are trained in choral speaking, poetry in performance, poetry writing, and dramatic monologues. Through the fundamentals of oral interpretation students will improve in the areas of oral expression, creative writing, articulation, and enunciation. They will also have a deeper appreciation of dramatic performance.

Our Preliminary classes are currently being held online over the Zoom platform.

Our new intake commences on Saturday 1st May 2021 at 10am.
