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.
