Speak Up Speech and Drama classes provide a safe environment for students to challenge themselves without feeling embarrassed or afraid of making a mistake. Drama games and improvisation are fun activities that allow students to stand up and present themselves without the pressure and hype of a “performance.”
Welcome to Speak Up
Confidence. Communication. Creativity.Hello, I'm Miss Cathy, owner and Chief Drama Queen at Speak Up Studio. At Speak Up, we create exciting and engaging drama programs that build confidence and encourage children to be positive about speaking up. Our programs give children the opportunity to make friends, dress up in costumes, develop a love of reading and literature and extend their performance skills in a supportive, and non-competitive environment. Through participation in Speak Up's extensive speech and drama programs, students will develop confidence, creativity and communication skills that will help them in school and be with them for life!
