New! Acting Classes for 8-16 yrs - Free Tasters Available


Dear all

We’d love to tell you about our new mid-week ACTING CLASSES launching this September in the professional drama studios at Sydenham School.

We are thrilled to announce that these new classes will be taught by EMILY HOLT. Emily has a long career in the performing arts industry and trained in acting at the prestigious LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art).

A local mother, Emily has a young family and whilst still working professionally as Movement Director for stage & screen, she also teaches on the BA Acting & Foundation courses at LAMDA and sits on the audition panels for prospective new students. It’s safe to say these new classes are in very safe hands and we are delighted to have Emily on board at Take Flight Academy!!!

As participants in our ACTING CLASSES, students will adopt an array of new acting skills and techniques from around the world, experience a huge variety of fun exercises and games, perform in our own unique adaptation of a play at the end of the year AND importantly, build vital self-confidence and make new friends!

In addition, the curriculum for our older students mirrors adult professional acting training and provides great support and foundation for both Drama & English GCSEs, National Youth Theatre auditions, Brit school or other drama school auditions.

Initially we are launching with two classes from this September:

Sydenham School, Dartmouth Road, SE26 4RD
Tuesday 6-45-8.45pm
Ages 12-16
FREE TASTER: Tuesday 9th September

Sydenham School, Dartmouth Road, SE26 4RD
Thursday 6-7.30pm
Ages 8-11
FREE TASTER: Thursday 11th September

The age splits for these classes are provisional and we have some flexibility, so if you are interested but are unsure of where your child/teen sits best, please do get in touch to discuss. Interest pending, we plan to add a third class further breaking up the age groups.

If you’d like further information or to book your child/teen onto our FREE TASTER sessions taking place this September, you can do so online via our website or call 07736 469321.

We hope you find these exciting new classes of interest!

Warm regards,

Stevie & Leanne

Both my sons have been through Take Flight academy, and if you didn’t know Sam from the Voice Kids is a current student.

We still have one of our boys enrolled and it’s done wonders for their confidence (well for one of them, not sure the other one needed more confidence!). I know many other children who go here and love it. Clearly no experience of Emily, but assuming a similar style, you’ll find a nice welcoming group and you’ll get to see your child perform some small pieces (maybe more in this age group) which is also nice to see.

Definitely worth a taster session if nothing else to try and see if your kids like it.
