New for Sydenham! Acting Classes for 8-16 years

Post by TakeFlightAcademy »


Dear all

We’d love to tell you about our new mid-week ACTING CLASSES launching in the professional drama studios at Sydenham School. We hope your child/teen would like to join us for a FREE TASTER this September!

We are thrilled to announce that these new classes will be taught by EMILY HOLT. Emily has a long career in the performing arts industry and trained in acting at the prestigious LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).

A local mother, Emily has a young family and whilst still working professionally as Movement Director for stage & screen, she also teaches on the BA Acting & Foundation courses at LAMDA and sits on the audition panels for prospective new students. It’s safe to say these new classes are in very safe hands and we are delighted to have Emily on board at Take Flight Academy!!!

As participants in our ACTING CLASSES, students will adopt an array of new acting skills and techniques from around the world, experience a huge variety of fun exercises and games, perform in our own unique adaptation of a play at the end of the year AND importantly, build the vital self-confidence that will help them really Take Flight in life!

In addition, the curriculum for our older students mirrors adult professional acting training and provides great support and foundation for both Drama & English GCSEs, National Youth Theatre auditions, Brit school or other drama school auditions.

Initially we are launching with two classes from this September:

Sydenham School, Dartmouth Road, SE26 4RD
Tuesday 6-45-8.45pm
Ages 12-16
FREE TASTER: Tuesday 9th September

Sydenham School, Dartmouth Road, SE26 4RD
Thursday 6-7.30pm
Ages 8-11
FREE TASTER: Thursday 11th September

The age splits for these classes are provisional and we have some flexibility, so if you are interested but are unsure of where your child/teen sits best, please do get in touch to discuss. Interest pending, we plan to add a third class breaking up the age groups a little more.

If you’d like further information or to book your child/teen onto our FREE TASTER sessions you can do so online via our website by following the link above or call 07736 469321.

We hope you find these exciting new classes of interest!

Warm regards,

Director/Business Manager
Take Flight Academy of Performing Arts
