Thank you so much for an amazing Friday (Performance) night.
All the segments were acted beautifully. Heather’s dad was simply stunned by Heather’s performance!
We have watched Heather in all of her drama performances but we can see how she has thrived since being in your class. Well done Alan!
Our 9 Week Childrens Workshop Course Includes:
Teaching is a vocation and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Furthermore in my opinion Drama is the best subject in the world to help children develop a raft of personal skills and to reach their full potential.
I have enjoyed the enormous privilege of observing hundreds of children in my drama workshops blossom into confident, creative young people all due to the power of drama.
Drama is such an effective and exciting tool for personal development. The best part of all is – that from the child’s perspective – they are just having wonderful fun!

Kitty is definitely coming back for Term 2. Your drama class is the most successful extra-curricular activity we have tried and you should know Kitty sings your praises to anyone who will listen.
In the space of one year you have turned my shy, awkward boy into a confident young man who can express himself and tackle unknown situations with self-belief and humour.
The work you do with these kids in invaluable, and your passion for your field shines through.
You are ‘one-in-a-million’ and I am so glad that we found Drama For Kids WA for Theo. Thank you.
Daniel and I would like to say “Thank you!” for being an amazing teacher. Thank you so much for your time, commitment, expertise and inspirational teaching – and your big heart! You helped Daniel and other students to find their wings and taught them to fly in their way. We are so lucky to have you as a drama teacher and meet you in our life. You are so valued and loved – especially by us.

Performance night was incredible. You have created a beautiful safe and positive space for young people to be themselves. It was evident some are nervous but not fearful. You are allowing them to find out who they are in such a supportive and encouraging environment, where they demonstrate respect for each other, regardless of personality, age, gender etc. I felt like each young person involved felt like they belonged, were respected and valued. I was aware of the positive impact of your program on Charlotte but could see the impact on all students and parents on the night. It is such a gift to all involved. I can't thank you enough.
My son had so much fun at the holiday program. He was reluctant to go at first but had a ball and looked forward to it each day. Highly recommend Alan's classes to all kids.
Mr blackwood (goes by Alan these days I hear) by far had the most impact on me as a person out of all my teachers growing up. It's a very personal experience with him as he helps you grow and mature as a person. His light hearted nature and easy going attitude makes it easy to find common ground and actually enjoy your learning experience and have fun with it.
Alan is the most knowledgeable and passionate drama teacher i know. He has such strong rapport with his students and does everything in his power to make sure they acheive their personal best. I was so inspired by this talented man so i became a drama teacher my self. Thank you for all you have taught me. If you ever come back to sydney i would definitely send my children to 'Drama for kids'.

Alan was a teacher who, on every occasion, went above and beyond. He is knowledgeable, caring, passionate and always wants his students to succeed and strive for their best. As a student, who went off track for a while, it was Alan who took measures to ensure I found my way again; and Drama came on top in my HSC with my solo and group projects both receiving outstanding results - and much of it is owed to Alan. I sincerely could not recommend him highly enough!
Growing up all through school I was always very shy and quiet. I couldn't speak in front of people, as having people's attention focussed on me caused me a lot of anxiety. Alan Blackwoods drama lessons helped me to overcome this anxiety. I performed a monologue in front of a crowd and although at the time it was scary, I am so glad I did it. I am now much more confident, and not as shy and scared of people anymore. He is the best drama teacher anyone could have.
I attended Alan's drama classes in my early 20's and they were invaluable, lots of fun, and great for building confidence.
Alan's classes are fun, motivating, social and above all confidence building. These are the sorts of classes that develop skills for life as an adult as well as today. Highly recommended for any and all kids.
Studying drama has helped me come out of my shell and given me a very elite skill set to face the world and through the help, guidance, and knowledge from Alan I was able go excel in not only drama through high school but also a lot of times in life where I needed to be able to make and good impression through speaking and presenting myself! As a teacher I couldn't have had a better one Alan's knowledge on the subject, experiences, connections and coaching are second to none. Thanks again for everything Alan!
Any child is lucky to be taught by Alan - when I first walked into his classroom, I was very shy. When I left, I was confident and had faith in my own abilities. Alan is able to connect with people of all ages, backgrounds and ability levels. In fact, it was Alan and his inspirational classes that made me fall in love with drama and want to teach. I will forever cherish the four years I spent under Alan's tutelage.
