Dressing up!

Westville North students loved their circus dress up day.  We love their enthusiasm and the effort that goes into their wonderful outfits! The Westville North library is always abuzz with our drama students on a Saturday morning.

How to become confident.

~ Have you ever thought that you can't do drama lessons because you're not confident enough? 
~ Have you ever thought that drama is only for those very talented people who can act?  

Drama classes are indeed for talented people who are already confident and seem very extroverted. But our drama classes are  also very much for people who are shy, lacking in confidence, and consider themselves introverts. Drama classes build confidence and often expose a talent that was tucked away in that little gremlin called Fear. Fear of people. Fear of failure. We all have that little gremlin living somewhere in our minds. Perhaps a small part of our gremlin is good, always keeping us in check. But we can't let Fear rule our lives. Some very famous actors confronted their Fears, and revealed their extraordinary talents. Google it! You'll be amazed.

At Helen O'Grady Drama Academy in Durban, we welcome everyone with or without gremlins to conquer their world. We help you to be the confident person you want to be.

"The train is running late!"

Our talented Westville North actors presented an excellent performance for their parents at the Westville North Library. Drama classes really are such fun.
