Drama For Kids WA is offering exciting Term and Holiday workshops for children aged between nine and twelve years old.
At Drama For Kids WA there is only one teacher and that’s Alan himself! Trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama Alan is amongst Australia’s most experienced, acclaimed and award winning drama teachers. Alan has extensive experience in teaching in Scotland, here in WA and in NSW. Hundreds of Perth children and teenagers previously attended Alan’s highly respected and successful The Actors Workshop prior to Alan moving to teach Drama in NSW.
Students learn how to self direct a scene : block a scene : develop a character : improve acting technique : effectively use a variety of Elements of Drama.
Students work in pairs or small groups on a scene for acting practice. Most scenes are selected from contemporary theatre. The course is tremendous fun and is ideal for students who enjoy acting as well as being perfect for personal development and confidence building.

Alan Blackwood has extensive experience working with teenagers. In WA Alan has devised and directed for the WA State Youth Theatre, John Curtin Performing High School and The Actors Workshop.
In NSW many of his teenage drama students were nominated for or invited to perform their solo performances at On Stage, a showcase for the very best performances from across the state. Very few students received such an invitation.
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!

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!
