Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in Taiwan
Every child is unique and at the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy all of our students are treated equally and given the opportunity to shine, regardless of their level of confidence or ability. We avoid auditions and ensure all our students feel encouraged and nurtured within our classes, enabling them to develop at their own pace.
With a focus on personalisation, each teacher at the Academy seeks to gradually integrate their students within the group until they are fully immersed in the fun classroom environment and unaware of any inhibitions they may have had before joining us.
Our teachers interact with the students in an energetic and engaging way to capture their students’ attention and encourage creativity. We all aim to make our hour-long sessions an exciting and fun-packed environment for students where they are able to develop social interaction and communication skills, engage creatively and express themselves confidently, both physically and vocally.
In cooperation with NicheCurrent Inc., 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!
