Drama Deconstructed is a weekly drama class targeted to develop key skills in both drama and beyond.

Private Coaching -
1-2-1

If you’re looking to build confidence, skill, and knowledge within the drama and performing arts, I can help!

Whether you’re a complete beginner, or a professional in the industry, I’ll tailor lessons to support your development. Working on a specific performance project, preparing for an audition somewhere, studying for an exam, or you want to build confidence and practice? Let me work with you to help you explore and achieve your goals.

Similar to the 1-2-1 sessions, these are with up to three students. An example might be a group of friends who want more support with tutoring for English, a group of three actors in a scene looking to develop their own character work together, or even it might be a small group of people who want to work on a project together. 

The sessions are tailored to your needs. 

These specially designed Masterclasses are for those who have some experience in performance, but want to learn more to an industry standard. 

With a focus on process, techniques, and practice, these masterclasses offer a theoretical and practical exploration of developing your craft in a safe and supportive environment.  Suitable for 16+

At present there is no masterclass scheduled, but new dates are coming soon! Please sign up to the newsletter to be kept up to date!
