Helen O'Grady Drama Academy – Derby

"Development Through Drama"

Our Classes

If you want your child aged 5 to 17  to join the most popular drama academy in the world, to perform, learn to speak well, learn skills to help them on leaving school, and have great fun, then act now! We guarantee your child will develop excellent social skills they will need in everyday life.

The aim of the Academy is to help young people, 5-17 years, develop:

  • speak more confidently
  • answer in full sentences
  • improve self esteem
  • meet new friends
  • act in plays
  • improve listening skills

These aims are achieved through a highly developed, unique, drama programme.

Each lesson is carefully planned. Curriculum includes introductory activities, speech, verbal dynamics, creative movement, mimes to music, language development, structured improvisation, dialogue development, snippets, scene starters, mini-scripts, parent day presentations, end of year productions to name but a few.

 Above all, our classes are fun!

All Principals and teachers have undergone extensive training in the Helen O’Grady curriculum and teaching methods.

All are CRB checked.

Each lesson stimulates students to be fully involved and motivated.

All students attend a one hour lesson, each week of the school year. The Helen O’Grady curriculum is structured in such a way children may join classes at age five and stay until they are seventeen and never repeat a lesson!
