Enchantica's to host free wellbeing workshops for kids this Easter

Harrogate-based theatre company Enchantica's is hosting free wellbeing workshops for children on 3rd April.

Enchantica's to host free wellbeing workshops for kids this Easter A Harrogate educational theatre company has a special treat for families this Easter. Families with children from birth to age 11 can enjoy a free wellbeing workshop at Enchantica’s Workshop on Wednesday 3rd April. Enchantica’s Workshop is a creativity and well-being studio on the south side of Harrogate that offers workshops and classes for children, adults and families. Director Suzie Vaughan, educational theatre and well-being specialist, has been making magic for families to enjoy for over two decades.

She said: "I am always being asked to offer more well-being classes for children and families and we are delighted to be launching a new summer term programme to support families in our community."
Sessions include Suzie Beats singalong well-being adventures for 0–3 year olds and their grown-ups, Rising Stars well-being adventure classes for ages 3-7 years (ages 7+ coming soon), plus new for the 2024 summer program, Creative Dance & Musical Theatre classes for ages 3-11 years.

Suzie added:
"We have added Creative Dance and Musical Theatre to the program as music and dance play a wonderful role in supporting well-being for all ages. "Music is proven to help children find ways to cope with mental health and our Dance and Musical Theatre classes help children to bring their ideas to life and enjoy embracing full expression through movement."
Statistics state that 1-6 children between age 5-16 are likely to have a mental health problem and the most common mental health problems among young people are emotional disorders including anxiety and depression. Suzie said:
"One of the best things you can do to support your child’s well-being is to weave regular well-being activities into your week. "Here at Enchantica’s we support you in doing just that. We design our holistic inspired classes to give children confidence, happiness superpowers and tools for life so that they can live their best lives. "My passion for educational theatre was fired up during my drama school training where I got to work with the Creative Arts Team at New York University and explore all the programs they had to offer. "I loved how theatre could bring learning to life and how I could channel my skills and passions as an actress into creating content that made a difference. "I now specialise in translating learning objectives into engaging content for children and families to enjoy. "Integrating well-being practices such as yoga, meditation and mindfulness into engaging theatrical content that benefits children and families is one of my biggest passions."
[caption id="attachment_103783" align="aligncenter" width="1024"] The wellbeing workshops will be free to attend.[/caption] Enchantica’s are also supporting local primary schools, including Oatlands Infants and St Peters, with after school classes and educational workshops, and welcome enquiries from other local schools. Parent Charlotte said:
"I cannot recommend Suzie and Rising Stars enough. "My son started Rising Stars this term with Oatlands Infant School and the benefits shine through every time he comes out. "He is someone who has always been a sensitive soul who worries, but after his class he comes out calm and positive. "He has even started to use his breathing exercises at home when he gets in a muddle."
