Where learning and imagination come to life…

Tomorrow’s world will require our children to be confident and creative and to possess the capability to connect meaningfully with others. Such a ‘stage’ requires preparation in more than just academic learning.

Founded in 1987 by Dean Carey (and with Hugh Jackman as its Patron), Actors Centre Australia (ACA) is a world-class Performing Art Centre and in its 30th Anniversary, it is now launching Actor Centre Kids (AC Kids). AC Kids is a partnership between ACA and MindChamps.

3Cs of AC Kids

CONFIDENT

Confidence is one of life’s absolute necessities. When kids are confident, they develop 100% respect for themselves and all those around them. This create a solid and productive foundation for interacting confidently with the world.

CREATIVE

As the world reinvents itself, our children have to be ready to do the same – and reinvention requires a high level of creativity. We harness your child’s creativity through engaging activities, exploration and building confident self-expression.

COLLABORATIVE

The latest psychological research shows that training in theatre enhances EQ by increasing empathy, social emotional control and the ability to connect meaningfully with others. This means that at AC Kids, we can draw upon the unique power of theatre to build a whole person, by nurturing the child’s inner emotional development.
