Perform

For kids who can’t get enough


Some kids are happy with one class a week, others wish they had drama every day.

For these kids, there’s the Performers Program! 

If your child has been enrolled in Speak Up group classes and is absolutely loving it, then our Performers Program is the next step in your child’s Speech and Drama journey.

Performers are challenged and inspired with higher level, more focused, and more challenging lessons and experiences. Think Speak Up lessons on overdrive. Longer classes, smaller groups, more individualised learning, additional performance opportunities.

Year At A Glance

 

Our Performers Program follows a similar structure to our group classes but with more involvement at events and performances. 

Imagination Festival
Term 1

 

Performers Program kids have the opportunity to enter pieces into different sections in the Festival. More stage time equals more practice and accelerated improvement. 

AMEB Exams
Term 2 & 3

 

In Term 2 and 3, students put together a program of pieces that are thematically linked and perform in front of an AMEB examiner, where they’ll gain valuable feedback to hone their craft. 

Annual Concert
Term 4

 

At our end of year concert, Performers are more involved, with more time on stage and special parts in the show. As concert leaders they’ll develop leadership skills on and offstage. 

Showcase Evenings
Each Term

 

At the end of each term we have a gorgeous showcase for our performers program students. These are held in our garden, under festoon lighting. They are relaxed, joyful events.

Speak Up is a place where our daughter is loved and valued and is made to feel accepted for exactly who she is. A very professional business with staff members who are genuinely passionate about the arts industry. We feel blessed to be a part of the Speak Up community.

Are you keen to join?

Performers Program classes are built around students who are ready to step up. You can’t just sign up to a class in the parent portal. We like to get to know your child (either through our group classes or holiday workshops) so we know who they are, what their goals are, and how to bring out the best in them.

 

Classes are conducted in pairs for private lessons or groups of four for Philosophers. We’ll recommend the format that’s best for your child.

 

When creating a class, we focus on personalities, connecting kids and teachers who’ll click. We also work with families to schedule classes at a time that suits.

Thanks very much for the email about Zara’s AMEB exam. We were quite amazed at the comments from the examiner. Thank you for your energy and input in helping her feel confident and “glow”.
