Classes start at age five and can continue until eighteen and are grouped into four levels accordingly: Introductory, Foundation, Intermediate and Advanced.
The goal is to help students to gain skills in three main areas:
Using the voice and body to communicate meaning
Engaging emotionally and intellectually with words
Background to classical and modern drama in English
Principles that underline English verse and prose
Students who attend classes at our location take a LAMDA exam every year.
