The Academy Drama programs provide opportunities for students to develop their acting skills in a lively and professional environment. Designed for young people who have a genuine enthusiasm for acting, these courses encourage students to build self-confidence, expand and develop communication skills, and stimulate the imagination. Basic warm-up exercises develop range and expressiveness in body and voice. Productions, whether improvised or scripted, give the students a sense of accomplishment, and the confidence to take the stage again.
