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! ​ Dramatically yours,  Miss Cathy More about our studio

All of the students seem to be loving this term and we are looking forward to some great performances at upcoming assemblies and parent watching week!


Our Studio Values

Confidence

Confidence

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.”

Communication

Communication

Learning to speak well is one of the first steps to improving confidence and communication skills – every Speak Up Speech and Drama class includes some vocal training as well as the opportunity for students to practice eye contact, concentration and listening skills.

Creativity

Creativity

Creating drama, inventing characters and telling stories are integral parts our classes. We incorporate a wide range of poetry and prose to engage and inspire students and regularly use arts and craft activities to create special props, costumes, or puppets, which the children use in performances.

Harnessing the Power of Imagination Through Drama

The most important thing we’ve learned, So far as children are concerned, Is that it’s always, always best To let them learn through fun and jest Or better still, to learn through play Imagining the day away.
