The Art of Speech and Drama helps people become more confident and compelling communicators and performers. We provide private lessons in public speaking and acting, as well as group classes and workshops for organizations. We are based in the vibrant St. James Community Square in Kitsilano, Vancouver.
The Art of Speech and Drama was created by a recent graduate of The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) after experiencing first hand the transformational power of speech and drama training.
Speech and drama skills are incredibly useful in our careers and everyday lives. Speech and drama skills help us to educate, persuade, entertain, encourage, inspire and enlighten each other. Sadly, these skills are underdeveloped in many people. That's where we come in. Our training is ideal for anyone who wants to improve their communication and performance skills.
Benefits include greater: self-esteem, confidence, creativity, imagination, spontaneity, expressivity, knowledge, persuasiveness, influence, emotional intelligence, self-awareness, empathy, and more.
Practical uses include: presentations, speeches, interviews, lectures, sermons, conferences, readings, meetings, auditions, plays, film, t.v, radio, improv, podcasts, broadcasts, storytelling, and more.
Our training is grounded in proven approaches used by world-class professional communicators and performers. Our tutors are highly qualified, talented, and passionate professional performing artists. Our approach works and is constantly progressing, moving forward, and evolving with our expanding experiences.
We carefully create and sustain a supportive, encouraging, and explorative learning environment that frees learner's to experiment, take risks, and grow. Our empowering approach gently expands people's creativity, expressivity, and confidence.
