About Us



Our Approach 

Speak Up Studio prides itself on offering the highest quality Speech and Drama tuition in Brisbane. We believe that every child is special. We love to see them learn and grow into confident young people.

Children aged three to 16, whatever their backgrounds or talents, will learn valuable skills which will stay with them for life. Overcoming shyness, building self-esteem and learning to speak clearly are just some of the skills children will develop during the fun and engaging classes.

Whether your child is a budding stage star or a keen debater, outgoing, shy, or just wanting to have some fun, Speak Up Studio will guide and support them as they achieve their goals.

With activities tailored to different age groups and levels, Speak Up Studio’s programs help young people develop their verbal skills, voice projection and spontaneity through improvisation and performance.

We believe in the power of books, poetry and drama and always aim to foster a love of reading and literature.

Small Classes

Our classes are inclusive and caring. Unlike some drama schools, Speak Up Studio does not cram 30 students from various age groups into one class. Quite the opposite!

Limited class sizes to ensure all children are included

  • Age-specific classes
  • A very positive and supportive atmosphere that encourages emotional and social development

Our Story

At Speak Up Studio, we are passionate about enriching the lives of children through drama. We believe in developing skills that will help children in school and stay with them for life.

Speak Up Studio is owned by Cathy Clur, a drama teacher with a difference. Cathy spent many years devising interesting and creative classes for her students, and she launched Speak Up Studio with the aim of sharing her magical programs with as many students as possible. Now in it’s fifth year, Speak Up Studio has developed a full primary drama syllabus and extensive series of creative workshops.

In January 2015, Speak Up Studio moved to a brand new studio space in Red Hill, Brisbane. This move marked the beginning of an exciting phase of Speak Up Studio, as an opportunity to share drama with younger students in our kindy and early childhood classes.
