The Benefits of Drama


Drama Provides mental and health benefits with a positive impact on social and personal development and developing emotional intelligence, for all ages,

There is always a new experience and something we can discover about ourselves.

In our sessions, we are creative, which nurtures the imaginations and confirms that it is good to play, be loud or quiet, feel anxious, be silly and laugh and have fun.

“The role of a creative leader is not to have all the ideas; it’s to create a culture where everyone can have ideas and feel they’re valued.”

SIR KEN ROBINSON (Author and Arts Education Adviser)



Even if your shy, you will develop confidence in our sessions, as you share your ideas, feel comfortable with your group, make friends and receive positive encouragement. Being brave and taking chances will allow your to discover and develop your performance skills.

“Acting is not about being someone different. It’s finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.”

MERYL STREEP (Actor)



We work and share as a group, watching and learning from each other, the key skill in acting is listening,  respecting others in the group and in our scene work. As we explore literature and dialogue, we improve our communication skills.

“Acting is mainly about listening, just focus on what the other person says, and it takes care of itself”

ALAN RICKMAN (Actor)



Performance is a collaboration, even solo work is for an audience or requires a crew. In our sessions, we work together, building ideas, learning from others and discovering how unique we are, and what we can achieve together.

“There are no small parts, only small actors”

STANISLAVSKY (Theatre Practitioner)

“I am a confident, passionate teacher and love the benefits drama can have as an exploration of our creative minds and enhancing our social development.

I am also work as an actor and director and use this in my work to demonstrate approaches and techniques.

I love designing and planning sessions, either writing my own material, exploring literature and finding new exercises.

Although my specialty is drama, I have studied physical, basic dance, music and comedy workshops.

I believe activities through the arts can be life-changing and open eyes and minds in unexpected ways. The best part of my job is seeing the development of those in my class”
