Information For Current Speak Up Families

Brisbane’s kindest drama school

We love watching children become the best versions of themselves. Speak Up Studio’s expert teachers help kids build confidence, improve communication skills and unleash creativity in a fun, warm, and supportive environment.

 

We hold Speech and Drama classes for kids in Brisbane at 17 locations. For kids in prep to grade 12.

 

When your child joins one of our Brisbane Speech and Drama programs, they’ll be stepping into an inviting and inclusive community. A community that is brought together by a love of language, literature, expression and performance.

 

In our Speech and Drama classes, we let kids be kids, and encourage them to explore who they are now and the person they want to be when they grow up. With the passion, the courage and the skills to speak up, your child can overcome anything.

I need to thank you again for Speak Up, it has been life-changing for me and without it I wouldn’t be the person I am today. Just being able to put your hand up in class and not be afraid to speak up or get it wrong is thrilling!

Drama is powerful, purposeful, and playful.

Whether it’s in a presentation at school, a job interview at work, or even in their future relationships, being able to effectively and clearly communicate is essential for success. Knowing what you want to say and being able to say it are really different. We help kids refine both.

Communicate Clearly

Collaboration. Listening. Compromise. Whether they’re the quiet kid who hangs back, or the bold kid who loves to be heard Speak Up gives kids the tools to work and communicate effectively with others. Speech and drama has all the benefits of a team sport... but with more rhyming.

Teamwork

Understanding things from someone else’s point of view is the first step to a more equal world. In Speech and Drama, we examine fictional characters we learn to articulate emotions, understand intentions, and observe different ways of viewing the world.

Reading for the joy of it, gobbling up poems and stories is something Speak Up kids relish. Literature has the power to educate, to inspire and to inform and our kids are encouraged to figure out what they like, and taught to think critically and read between the lines.

A Love Of Language
We knew we’d made the right choice getting our daughter involved in SpeakUp classes when her teacher commented that she’d changed from a person who never spoke in class to one who would now put up her hand to answer questions. Our anxious child has blossomed under their guidance.
