“I decided I needed to move outside the box & learn a few new skills of my own. I really needed a big confidence boost. Well I can definitely say that Acting 1 was definitely a big step in the right direction, I enjoyed every class & soon came to realise drama was not just about scripts & rehearsals: It was a combination of games, social interaction & pushing comfort zones. Our Teacher made every class fun & prepared us well. After my 1st performance night, where we each presented a monologue, I felt like I had achieved the impossible.”
