Building Confident Kids, Teens, & Adults
Couldn’t be happier. My son has ASD and since joining Drama Works his performance at school has improved, he is more engaging and happier in himself. We were all so impressed with the end of year production for all the young people. They all did a tremendous job and we were very entertained. Thank you Drama Works Team. Your work and dedication makes a massive difference.
Nine years ago our 2 children began classes with Drama Works. At that time I would never have guessed what a major part of their lives it would become. They have grown in confidence, expression and life skills, all in a supportive and positive atmosphere. Drama Works has helped them become the people they are today, while also inspiring dreams for the future.
My son loves going to Drama Works classes. It’s the first time he’s really committed to and has had a passion for an after school activity. He’s become more emotionally resilient and enjoys being amongst a range of different aged kids.
The end of year performance was fantastic and showed so much talent and fun.
I have two kids of different ages and varying levels of confidence and they both get an enormous amount out of their drama and musical theatre lessons. They have so much fun and constantly impress me, most recently through their involvement in the end of year performance. I’m blown away with how far they’ve come and I’m sure the lessons are giving them a creative outlet that helps in the classroom too.
Drama Works is not just a drama school, it’s a family. For the past 9 years I’ve been growing in confidence, finding my voice, learning and honing performance and stage skills, developing character and the list goes on. I have been challenged and had so much fun in the Performance Team as well as when I completed the Certificate IV in acting for stage and screen. The teachers are so full of knowledge and passion for what they do, I look up to every one of them. I’m certainly not the same shy, self conscious kid who walked into her first class 9 years ago. I hope every child has an incredible experience at Drama Works Academy!
Hi Louisa, my daughter engaged in her first Zoom lesson with Miss Sarah this afternoon and it was absolutely exceptional. Sarah took the time to teach the kids how to use the platform, clearly explained her expectations, and maintained momentum and engagement for the entirety of the lesson. I felt that I had to take the time to congratulate you and Miss Sarah on such a successful first lesson. Changing to an online format is incredibly difficult (a challenge I’ve been living for the past 4 weeks!), particularly when your audience are children, but this afternoon was brilliant, and she loved it. I know how much time and work has gone in behind the scenes by you and your teachers to get this happening, so thank you. This week has been tough for the small people in my house and I am incredibly grateful for the bright light that this lesson was in my daughter’s week.
At Drama Works Academy, we’ve spoken to many parents that have attested to numerous benefits of their children attending our drama school. Here’s why we believe our approach to drama works so well:
A Safe Space to Explore
Our focus is upon creating a wonderful atmosphere that inspires and uplifts our students. We also monitor drama class numbers – teacher to student ratio – to ensure that each student gets the best opportunity to develop skills that help them to perform, and build confidence which translates into essential life skills.
Developing Key Life Skills
We pride ourselves on leading games and activities that develop students’ understanding of themselves and the world around them. Our inclusive approach dramatically develops:
A Positive Outlet
We’ve also seen that the inclusive culture of our drama school for kids, teens, and adults has proven to be a positive outlet for students with developmental and behavioural challenges. Drama class is an excellent tool to activate the essential attitudes of tolerance, empathy and acceptance.
Reaching for the Stars
Our award-winning extension programs are a great way to develop outstanding performers. We love watching as our students grow from acting classes for beginners, to experienced and confident individuals eager to reach for the stars.
