The Playing Space provide Speech and Drama Education for children and adults. Our classes involve a wide range of speech and drama activities. We play acting games and improvise our own scenes. We work with published texts – drama, verse and prose. We also devise and write our own stories and scenes. We do tongue-twisters, breathing exercises and physical games. We mime, learn lines and read at sight. In classes run by The Playing Space, students can express and share their ideas freely and fearlessly.
Music, Dance & Drama
We joined The Playing Space about 5 years ago as it was strongly recommended by friends of ours who are teachers. Our girls are now 9 and 12 and they have enjoyed both the weekly classes as well as the Summer School. It is fun, they are learning and working together in groups, developing their imagination and confidence as they do so, which helps tremendously in school and with their peers. The Playing Space is so well run by highly organised Gabi and her competent team members who appear to have an endless amount of energy, ideas and enthusiasm. I highly recommend the Playing Space, in particular if you wants your child's individuality to be respected and developed.
My daughter loves this class and it has been a joy to watch her grow in confidence. Thank you to Gabs, Rebekah and the team
My son enjoys going to drama every time. It doesn't always feel like a professional drama class compared to other drama schools but perhaps that's the appeal for some children (like my son) because they feel more relaxed.
