Originally developed in the U.K (Manchester), Genetik Sessions is created for young people between the ages of 10 and 18 and has been a success for over 10 years. Whether you are exploring for the first time or are a seasoned performer, Genetik Sessions is a place for you have fun whiles advancing creatively.
Though Genetik may be seen as ‘another performing art programme’ our aim goes beyond that to offer young people guidance in life skills as well. For example our sessions always starts with our tutors presenting a planned 5-10min motivational talk on a choice subject. Each talk is delivered with the intent to create a thinking process that would allow our young people to think for themselves and to make a better choice in their daily lives. As well motivating them with short term or even immediate thinking i.e what do you do in a ‘now situation’ we also aim to encourage thinking out of the ‘now’ to ‘what do you aim for the future?’.
