Drama Lessons for Everyone

The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy is an international Drama school that aims to give students on-going confidence and skills in verbal communications. Students attend our afternoon or weekend extra-curricula classes for an hour a week.
We use a highly developed curriculum that has been constantly evolving since 1979. Its established, and drama practitioners from around the world are constantly writing new material or us.

Age appropriate classes

We separate our classes into groups and thus the curriculum is age appropriate.
Kindy: 3-4 year olds
Lower Primary Drama Classes: 5-8 year olds
Upper Primary Drama Classes: 9-12 year olds
Youth Theatre Drama Classes: 13-18 year olds
Adult Drama Classes: 18 years and older

Every term aims to develop students. In Term 2 our students present a showcase for their parents and friends. In term 4 students perform their very own production at the Roodepoort Theatre.

Affordable fees

We are community based and are thus very affordable and accessible. We have studios across Johannesburg at various easy-to-access locations. Our fees are only R750 per a 10 week term and there are no extra costs to join.

We award our students, not on accolades and talent, but rather on commitment. Students win certificates for a years attendance, a bronze medal for 2 years, Silver for 3 years, Gold for 4 years and a trophy for 5 years of commitment. Loads of students win awards as every lesson is different and students never repeat lessons...thus the lessons are fun and jam-packed with activities!

Our classes are practical-based and students love learning:
• Acting skills and techniques
• Speech training and vocal warmups
• Staging and blocking skills
• Improvisational Skills
• Script work
• Character Development
• Performance Arts Skills
• Confidence
• Self-Esteem
• Skills in Verbal Communications
• Creativity

I have been running my Academy in Johannesburg for 10 years now, and have been teaching for the Academy for 12 years. I have my Cum Laude Honors Degree in Drama and performance Studies.
All our Teachers have their Drama Degrees and have been trained in the Helen O'Grady system. Our Teacher Assistants are currently studying for their Drama degrees and are previous students of our Academy. We want to give our past students an opportunity thus we give them a platform of assisting our teachers in class.

I absolutely love teaching Drama.

- Fourways

My two boys used to be shy and reserved when they were young. We then made a decision to send them to the Helen O Grady Drama Academy which happened to be based just next door to our house.

The boys have not looked back since. They have developed into fine young men that express themselves with ease. Going for their drama class is always something the boys look forward to. At school the boys have become the best drama students in their grades.

I have personally been impressed by the annual productions and I always look forward to all the kids give their brilliant performances on this annual event.

Thank you Kerry for the difference you have brought to our kids. We really appreciate.

As a small enrichment school I like to bring in activities that achieve more than just one goal. I also like to bring in the best that I can find and Kerry was the only person I wanted to have as part of our team. Drama brings a richness to our curriculum and the Helen O’Grady Programme is perfect for developing confidence, pride in the words we speak, confidence in exploring imagination and creative ideas, personal space, group accountability, social connection, auditory timing and awareness, visual-motor integration and movement. Kerry is wonderful with our children from Grade 1 all the way to Grade 7. She builds them up and holds their space in a way that makes them feel safe and confident. This is an activity I continue every year as part of our weekly timetable because it is so powerful. – Lauren Edmunds, Principal Omatas Learning Centre, Northcliff

“My child Meredith has been doing drama with Kerry for 9+ years and it has benefited her immensely! The classes have helped Meredith come out of her shell and grow into a confident teenager. She has had so much fun and thoroughly enjoyed her time with Kerry at Helen O Grady Drama Academy.”
