Drama Lessons

We are excited to announce that from September, our Young Dancers Academy drama teacher, Judi Swinney, will be offering private lessons in Acting and Performance for 5-16 year olds at the Du Boisson Studios, 25 Bulwer Street, W12 8AR on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons.


These lessons will be tailored to each child's needs and goals - whether they want to gain in confidence, develop performance skills, prepare for auditions or simply have fun doing something they love. If students would like to use these lessons to gain audition experience and qualifications, Ms Swinney will prepare them for LAMDA examinations in Acting and Performance. Ms Swinney has a wealth of experience and expertise preparing students for LAMDA examinations, which are recognised by Ofqual and accredited to the Qualifications and Credit Framework, meaning that they accrue points which build towards UCAS scores.


LAMDA qualifications are designed to improve communication and interpretative skills and develop self-confidence, physical presence and a strong speaking voice. They will engage with character and situation and further develop their love of literature, poetry and drama, thus improving their ability to read easily, fluently and with good understanding, whilst learning to memorise and recall information.


Classes can be individual, in pairs, or small groups (maximum 5 students). Each lesson will last 30 minutes and cost £20 for individuals, £25 for pairs and £30 for small groups (10 lessons per term, payable in advance). As this is a new venture, Judi Swinney is offering a free 'taster' session to WLSD students, after which you can decide whether to book for the rest of the term.


Please contact Judi Swinney at  directly not the school office if you are interested in booking a taster session.
