More About Mini Magic
Mini Magic LTD has been created by someone by one who is Mini, and someone who's literally Magic! Based in the North East of Scotland, Emma and Shaun have fused together their strengths to craft this unique Theatre Programme.
Here's How It All Began…
Having worked extensively throughout the UK, Emma McIntosh has taught a spectrum of Theatre Practise disciplines: she and Shaun were able to collaborate minds to compile the enchanting world of what we see in ‘Mini Magic’.
Emma's wide spread experience of teaching, spans from some of the furthest north points in Scotland, down to the buzzing heart of the performing world – London. It is through having these experiences, that she has been able to channel all efforts into a devised class plan, which is unique and specifically designed to harness the nature of ‘Magic’, Theatre and Movement.
From a young age, Emma was fortunate to be exposed to all aspects of performing - shaping and enhancing her later career. To further validate why the success of ‘Mini Magic’ Emma has been specifically brought in to teach and train young children with additional needs in centres of Early Years establishments.
Above and beyond all, Emma has devoted many years of research and development, culminating the structure basis behind the class plan theory.
