Positive Feedback from Kids in Brisbane

Setri gave the workshop 10/10 and said he would recommend it to other kids his age! – Sarah (mum, 2015) 


Thank you! My son had a lovely time this past week. All your staff are caring and inclusive which is reassuring as a parent.  My son has anxiety, joining group activities is always a challenge. Your staff didn’t judge him, they welcomed him with acceptance into an inclusive environment. He is looking forward to future sessions! Sarah (mum, 2017)

What Kids Love About Our Workshops

Speak Up Studio’s school holiday workshops are a fantastic way for children to have fun and develop their creativity.  Our fantabulous school holiday workshops aim to develop self-confidence, communication skills and creativity through a combination of dance, drama, craft, storytelling, science and art. As always, Speak Up’s educational programs are created to be inclusive, engaging and age appropriate. Most importantly of all, our workshops are full of excitement and Brisbane kids want to come back again and again!

Make Friends

Speak Up workshops are a great opportunity to make friends with like minded kids from other schools! Lots of students come to our workshops with a friend (or a gang of friends!) but it’s even more exciting to make new friends on the day.

Learn a New Skill

From sewing to painting, singing to dancing, acting to telling jokes – there’s always an educational outcome to our fun and creative workshops. When it comes to learning new skills, our teachers find the perfect balance between challenging and supporting our young participants!

Express Yourself

Self confidence is at the heart of what we do at Speak Up. All of our workshops incorporate an element of self expression, and students are encouraged to add their own personal flavour to their craft or character!


Explore A Passion

We base many of our workshops on popular content that makes it easy for kids to engage with drama, musical theatre, team activities, and craft projects! Harry Potter fanatics, mini Jedi, Pokemon Trainers and any kind of Disney lover will feel right at home at Speak Up.

Perform

When it comes down to it, we are a performing arts studio, and getting kids to perform on stage is our favourite thing to do. Positive performing experiences build confidence, and we are committed to giving kids the skills and supportive environment they need to shine on stage! Students are encouraged to perform, but are never forced if they do not want to.

Get Dressed Up

Costumes have an incredible way of helping kids connect with characters and step out of themselves. Students are encouraged to dress up for workshops, and costumes are often provided to ensure workshops are super fun and exciting.

Workshop Programs

Speak Up workshops are split into three levels based on age, complexity and lengths, depending on the story your kids want to tell these school holidays! With more than 25 workshops held each week the program is designed to be flexible:

  • Some kids choose one day of workshops as a special treat, something to look forward to!
  • Some kids try workshops as introduction to Speak Up (check with us if your child struggles with anxiety, sensory processing or low self confidence, as certain workshops may be a little much for them at first. We can advice on the most appropriate introduction to Speak Up to ensure they have a positive experience right away)
  • Some kids mix and match workshops throughout the two weeks
  • Some come for a full week. (Ask us about discounts if booking more than two kids into a full week!)

If you aren’t sure which workshop is right for your child, please ask – our friendly admin team is just a phone call away!
