Yes, you read that right – Doctor Who courses in a school.Â The educational organization in question is the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA), which trains Australian students of all ages in the practices of theatre, film, and television, and they’ve just introduced a line of Doctor-Who-themed winter sessions for children (sorry folks, no adults allowed).
Courses include several acting classes aimed at various age groups working from Doctor Who scripts, Whovian model and costume classes, and some Who-centered design and film-making activities that, unfortunately for those interested, have already begun.
As an amateur film-maker, I can’t help but praise NIDA’s new course options as an excellent way of making the youth of the world excited about the art of entertainment!
The NIDA addition of Whoniverse-related instruction also serves as a sign of Doctor Who’s growing popularity amongst the Aussies, which is excellent news indeed for those in support of BBC Worldwide’s plot of conquering the world using a Type 40 TARDIS.
For information about enrolling your youngster, here’s NIDA’s list of available courses.Â Prices range anywhere from $195 to $525, depending on the difficulty and age level.Â NIDA is based in Kensington, New South Wales.
