AND ALSO TRAINING COURSES

AND ALSO TRAINING COURSES

Training course : live performance and young children

Young children are constantly discovering their world ; this is the age of first-time sensations and emotions. It is an ideal time to become part of an audience. That is why we are organizing shows in the Festival for very small children and the adults who accompany them. We are also developing a programme of shows in the different districts of Charleville-Mézières and in other towns in the Ardennes department to enable families to take advantage of these events.

To extend this programme, we are planning a training course called Shows for very young children open to parents and professionals dealing with young children.
The themes deal with:
- Being a spectator
- Welcoming artists in toddlers daycare
- Shows for younger audiences... an experience to live and share

For more information
