Our weekly classes for 7-10 year olds aim to improve concentration, boost your child’s confidence and gives them a creative outlet to promote friendships, all while having fun! Our classes help to encourage children to learn new skills within a fun environment. All scripts are written by Reflect Productions and each term there is a different theme to develop your child’s imagination. There are some instances where students are given scope to develop their own ideas and devise their own scripts/pieces to help encourage your child to use their imagination. These weekly drama classes run after school for an hour in Merton Park and Hammersmith.
Our weekly classes encompass all three disciplines of performing arts; acting, singing and dancing. Our classes include dances and movement based drama games which help develop co-ordination, core stability and balance. The children also learn songs which help improve confidence and concentration; as well as giving those more shy children within the group the chance to shine as part of an ensemble. Our classes mainly focus on drama-based activities using role-play and storytelling to promote imagination and speaking skills in a fun way.
Each term our classes have a different theme focusing on different aspects of Drama. Our Spring Term tends to focus on a specific area of drama where children have the opportunity to explore further; previous themes during this term have included Comedy Term and Cabaret Term. Summer Term tends to focus on a general theme such as ‘Fairytales and Fables’ or a more individual theme such as ‘Spotlight Term’ which enables students to work on solo pieces developing their own acting skills. Our Autumn Term classes work towards a big end of term production involving all of our classes; previous shows have included ‘Neverland’, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘A Visit from Mary Poppins’.

“My youngest is six with speech and language delay this has helped her hugely helping her with memory and speech. she loves to attend and perform in all the amazing plays. next is my middle daughter who is 13, she loves to take part in all the shows helping back stage and with the younger groups, Kirsty has given opportunities to take part in LAMDA exams? Charlotte loves the variety that Kirsty teaches them, singing, dancing and drama. My eldest is 14 he has autism, Kirsty is amazing with him, his confidence has grown and this has made him have a love for drama. Kirsty is an amazing teacher who treats every child individually and shows warmth and kindness to them all.
“Kirsty and her amazing team bring out the best in every child lucky enough to come to her classes. My children look forward to the sessions every week and have enjoyed being part of some truly special productions.
