About the Classes
Children can attend my LAMDA Speech and Drama classes from the age of 4. These classes focus on fun drama games as a means to increase confidence and build self esteem. Even at this young age the children will take an exam in Verse and Prose and be awarded a graded certificate. Generally children continue to take exams once a year in Verse and Prose until they reach Year 7 when they switch to Acting. Children can choose to perform either a monologue or a duologue. The classes last for 30 minutes and so numbers per class don't want to exceed 12 students. I usually teach LAMDA Speech and Drama in year groups but if numbers are a little low, year groups can be merged.
