Our Programs

With our passion for all things Drama, we like to ensure Drama Works for you too! This academy of performing arts classes are operated by a passionate team of teaching professionals led by founder, Louisa Snelling.

Our mobile approach means that we run programs across numerous suburbs allowing more individuals and groups access to enrol in activities that are creative, engaging, and inclusive.

Our experience with Drama Works has been outstanding. It is the highlight of my children’s week and they both enjoy the variety of experiences the drama classes offer. The boost in their confidence and self-esteem has been very noticeable.

Each program is supported by our strength based curriculum outworked in all classes, celebrating the uniqueness and ability of each student. Our academy of performing arts programs promote strong communication skills, team work and creative thought with monitored class numbers to ensure an individual learning experience.

We believe that encouragement is the fuel to fly so we aim to engage all students in a class atmosphere that promotes confidence in themselves and their skill set.

We will often write our own material during the year, showcasing the students’ abilities to script and devise characters ready for live performance. Students perform in end of year shows for family and friends.

Extension Programs

Eisteddfod Team – 9-12 yrs

Drama Works’ Eisteddfod Team is offered as an extension program on top of regular weekly drama classes for those students that show potential and interest in the area of acting for stage performance.

It is programmed to build on existing skills taught in regular classes and aims to increase knowledge of stage craft, vocal techniques and character development by giving the students performance opportunities in local Eisteddfod competitions. This group will work closely together to understand the importance of “team” for the benefit of performance.

Skills learnt in an Eisteddfod team go beyond stage skills. The level of participation and commitment required promotes motivation, time management, self-discipline, and team work. Although Eisteddfods are competitive in nature, our emphasis is on personal-best participation, building confidence, increasing skill sets, and performing for fun.
