Bristol Academy of Drama
Bristol Academy of Drama are a 5* rated children’s drama school where they focus on all areas of theatre rather than the musical theatre genre. During our term time classes and holiday workshops we learn about and engage in all spheres of drama from shadow theatre to devising, mask work to puppetry and many more.
We are all about encouraging children to harness the power of drama. Through the fun of drama and improvisation games and, with the help and encouragement of our experienced drama facilitators, they will build confidence, enhance creative thinking skills, teach teamwork skills and make new friends.
“My eight year old is very shy and wary of new things. She was a bit worried about coming along, and I wasn’t certain how it would go to be honest. It was wonderful to see her perform at the end of the session and even better when the first thing she said to me afterwards was “When can I come again?”. Thank you so much for giving her the confidence to try something new.”
This summer we are offering 4 wonderful and fun workshops offering something in all ages ranges. Each workshop introduces children to new and interesting theatre challenges covering a variety of different theatre styles; there really is something for every child wanting to engage with performance and drama.
Why not join us to see why children love attending our classes.
All our workshop this summer will be held at The Kelvin Players Theatre on the Gloucester Road in Bristol, BS7.
