As someone who has been teaching drama for 25 years, it’s quite exciting developing a brand new skill. If you had asked me at the beginning of 2020 whether I thought online drama classes would work, I would have been very skeptical. However, necessity is the mother of invention! Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed connecting with my students via a new medium during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In July 2020, we had over 150 weekly online students. They loved building their drama skills through a computer screen. There are so many drama games that can be played effectively in this way. It is also an excellent opportunity to develop valuable screen acting skills!
Many of our students are also now preparing for LAMDA exams to make sure that they are ready for the December session.
The Playing Space continues to run some Zoom classes alongside our regular face-to-face timetable. You can find details on our programme page. If you are interested in joining our online Zoom Drama Classes then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
