Two years ago my son switched drama schools, to train for AMEB with Lauren at Grace Studios. It’s been the best move we’ve ever made! He had lost his passion for performance and his confidence in his abilities but rediscovered it at Grace Studios. The teachers are professionals. They don’t just know the craft; they know teaching and they know kids. They know just how far to push my son to get him to shine. He’s challenged but in a supportive atmosphere. He loves going to class and I love seeing him perform! He re-found his passion and confidence at Grace Studios. More...
I started my drama journey with Grace Studios in 2011, being introduced to my teacher, Anna-Grace, through staff at my high school.
I was soon completing my first AMEB exam and preparing for a multitude of auditions for various theatrical performances. Anna was also able to help me overcome a few minor speech faults that I had developed as a result of being brought up around ESL family members.
Since graduating high school, I have been studying Engineering at UNSW - a field which may seem to have little in common with my drama studies. However, the speech and performance education provided at Grace Studios has been an immeasurable help in my career - giving me the soft skills that are so critical in developing professional relationships and conveying information concisely and intelligibly to clients.
Last year, I completed my teachers Associate in Drama and Performance (ADPA); a culmination of many years of hard work and guidance from Anna, who pushed me to achieve my best. Since then, it has been an absolute pleasure to be given the opportunity to teach at the very same school that helped nurture my talents and propel me into my future.
Grace Studios has given me a platform to truly express and develop myself, and one that I could not be more thankful for to be a part of. More...
There have been many positive experiences for us with Grace Studios over the years, the most enjoyable being the end of year concert which showcases the hard work, dedication and amazing talents of the staff and students.
I have been a student at Grace studios for 7 years. I initially crossed paths with the studio director, Anna-Grace Millward when I joined Theatre Sports in high school. I wasn’t the finest at sports in school but I loved drama, so theatre sports was the perfect place for me to create collectively with like minded people in a safe and welcoming environment. It was through theatre sports that I discovered Grace Studios. Now being out of high school and at uni and being part of the work force, I can say my time at Grace studios has gifted me the skills to tackle life. I have been lucky enough to have Anna as my teacher, mentor and friend for 7 years now and my love for drama is stronger than ever. Anna is extremely patient, supportive and really pushes you to reach your full potential. I am now preparing to sit my grade 8 exam for the ‘Australian Music Examinations Board’ and hope to receive my teaching diploma in the future. All of the teachers at Grace Studios have completed their Associate Diploma in Drama and Performance, Australia (ADPA) and have a complex and strong knowledge about all things drama. The teachers at the studio are fantastic and really help to foster a respectful, colourful and exciting environmental for children and adults alike. I can’t recommend Grace studios enough and I am very grateful for all of the dedication and knowledge Grace studios has given to me. More...
