Our weekly classes aim to improve concentration, boost your child’s confidence and give them a creative outlet to promote friendships all while having fun! Our classes include fun drama-based games, along with songs and dances to help bring out the inner performer within your child. All scripts are adapted by Reflect Productions and each term there is a different theme to develop your child’s imagination. These weekly drama classes run for one hour and classes are held in Merton Park and Hammersmith.
Classes are held after school and run for an hour.
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 daughter has been doing drama classes for two terms now in Reception class and looks forward to them each week with great excitement. Kirsty has a wonderful, charismatic way with the children, building their confidence, self-expression and listening skills in a way that any parent would find invaluable. Thanks Kirsty!’
Both my daughters have got so much from their Reflect drama experiences. The holiday workshops have been a great success – with lots of enthusiastic rehearsing at home as well as during the sessions. They love going to Wednesday drama club and it is fantastic seeing their confidence grow with the support and encouragement of Kirsty and her team. Reflect Productions is a professional organisation that succeeds in getting the best out of a diverse group of children, whatever their ability and confidence level. Seeing the smiles of pride and pleasure on their faces at the end of their shows is testament to this.
Thank you so much for this week, despite being unsure at the start, Jake has had a brilliant time and we thought the show today was great!! His first words when he came out was please can I do the next show…
