The beginning of a wonderful new Academy
Helen O’Grady opened the initial Helen O’Grady Children’s Drama Academy in Perth, Australia, in 1979. She is the originator of the acclaimed Helen O’Grady Drama System, which is now used in 41 countries.
In September 2003, Trinity College, London, one of the largest and best known institutions of its kind in the world, recognised Helen’s unique achievements by giving her an honorary Fellowship (F.T.C.L.)
A word from Helen O’Grady herself:
“I am inspired by the power of the unique, developmental drama programme to influence and empower children of many races and cultures. ……
Through the programme thousands and thousands of young people find their voice, generate self-belief, become generous participants in life and experience much fun and fulfilment along the way!”
Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in Taiwan
In cooperation with NicheCurrent, children will enjoy a creative drama program that promotes confidence, self-esteem, skill in verbal communication and positive outlook in life. At the end of each academic year, kids will put together an original play for family and friends.
Our aims are to provide a self-development through drama programme for children, to encourage:
- Enthusiasm, energy and a positive approach to life.
- Ongoing confidence.
- Self esteem.
- Skill in verbal communication.
- Effective social interaction.
Our programs encompass a huge body of developmental drama.
Each lesson is carefully planned and includes a mix of these elements :
- Introductory activities
- Speech practice
- Verbal dynamics
- Creative movement
- Mimes to music
- Language development
- Structured improvisation
- Dialogue development
Our classes run each week during school terms. Classes are grouped by age.
Enthusiastic participation in each lesson is encouraged in a supportive non-competitive and fun environment.
At the end of the Academy year our students present a short, scripted production and all family members are invited to this exciting event!
All our teachers are fully qualified in the Helen O’Grady curriculum and undergo regular exclusive training.
