WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Our daughter has grown in so many ways since joining DDA. We originally enrolled her to help her gain confidence, but under Hannah's knowledgable and supportive tutorage what began as a preference for pretend play has grown into a love of acting, stagecraft and all the creative processes that surround it.
Not only has her confidence increased but her self-esteem as well. She's learnt to value the things that make her who she is & developed a real passion for self-expression. Her ability to empathise and communicate effectively have really come to the fore and she's made some great friends to boot.
I can't recommend Dorset Drama Academy highly enough!"
"My son has been attending DDA for almost a year now. He absolutely loves his drama classes and can't wait for them each week. Not long after joining he got a part in a short film, which was a wonderful experience . He is now working towards his first Acting LAMDA exams. DDA is a lovely and friendly community with small groups and fantastic teachers!!!!"
"Both my daughters love going to drama class. Hannah did a fantastic job of getting my oldest through her first ever LAMDA exam with a fantastic mark."
