Drama

Find out more about the genres we have on offer

Music Drama Dance Art
We believe that the arts have the power to transform the lives of children and young people. Research shows that drama is particularly effective at developing children’s self-confidence, speaking and listening skills and social interaction.
 
Our drama courses enable children to progress as they grow – from young children doing dramatic play to teenagers performing in full-scale youth theatre productions. In addition to developing their acting, voice and movement skills, young people also learn about theatre and dramatic literature. Oh, and they have a lot of fun!
 

‘As a parent, it has been an interesting process to see my son’s confidence and performance skills develop’
