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
Skills in Verbal Communications

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.
