Full-time Macquarie EmployeeContractor / Casual Staff / Agency WorkerStarTime’s Variety Day is designed to make the performing arts accessible, fun and inspiring to all ages and abilities. In this program we take the physical aspects and mix them with the creative. Divided into groups, participants will learn and perform short, high energy routines, while the fundamentals of improvisation are learned with our “improv-sports” drama games. A great day to exercise and develop those creative hearts and minds.
