Drama Classes on offer at JACAD
Our Drama classes cater for all levels and personalities! We want to offer our pupils the very best teachers and opportunities. We have three drama classes available:
Junior (age 5yrs to 8yrs) Drama taught by Mrs Kate Field
Intermediate (age 9yrs to 13yrs) Drama taught by Mr Alexander McWilliam
Senior Drama (age 13yrs and above) taught by Mr Alexander McWilliam
Our Junior lessons will inspire the next generation of actors building their self confidence and unlock their imagination in a fun environment. Our Intermediate and Senior classes will focus on preparation for LAMDA examinations. LAMDA examinations are a great way to unlock a range of skills that will serve an individual throughout their life. The LAMDA classes consist of learning different monologues, working on interpretation and vocal technique and for the higher grades some theory as well. It will build up self confidence, as well as developing communication skills and refining their technical ability. As well as preparing students to take their LAMDA exams, Alex shall be working on their acting technique, with vocal exercises to improve their voices and improvisation games and exercises to work on their acting and improv skills.
Those seeking Audition Preparation: It can be very difficult to find the time to look for the right material and then to prepare it for an upcoming audition. Alex can offer one-to-one acting lessons to cater for your individual needs. We can work on anything ranging from characterisation to breath control, and if you require help for a singing audition we have Mrs Kate Field our vocal coach who alongside Alex can work on acting through song as well.
In 2009 LAMDA Examinations became accredited, therefore students taking the higher grades in the LAMDA syllabus (Bronze, Silver & Gold) the result are the equivalent of AS and A-Level grades. Which means that when applying for university, they can count towards UCAS points.
