Building Confident Kids, Teens, & Adults

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:

Team work; and
Creative thinking

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.
