I am a passionate and experienced drama teacher and drama workshop facilitator having honed my skills over the last ten years in a variety of school, theatre and youth theatre environments.
I am a qualified drama teacher with the Irish Board of Speech and Drama and in 2013 received my Licentiate Diploma, which qualifies me to examine. My masters in directing and my bachelors in Drama and theatre studies have helped me to create well rounded, educative and exciting class plans and tutorials which inspire creativity and help build my students confidence.
I have prepared students for drama exams on various examination boards including L.A.D.A, The Leinster School of Music and Drama and The Irish Board. I have worked in Leading stage schools and youth Theatres in both Ireland and the U.K. I provide actor coaching as a class or on a one-to-one basis. Whether you are looking for drama school audition help, or top up acting support I can help. With a warm and personable style I can guide you through what might be holding you back, help you discover your potential and build your confidence. Please contact me to discuss your particular needs.
Over the past eight years I have managed various drama and theatre related summer camps in the Dublin area. I am looking forward to hosting The Fairy Camp this summer in connection with the Bradley Theatre school in the Monk Gibbons Hall in Mount Merrion. I specialise in delivering high standard camps for younger children, incorporating singing, acting, dancing, storytelling, dress up and puppetry.
I have also been heavily involved with several youth theatres in Dublin over the past number of years. I have worked with many youth theatres including Young Dramatic Arts Youth Theatre, Droichead Youth Theatre, M.A.D youth theatre and the Independent Youth Theatre (I.Y.T). In 2012 she sat on the committee of I.Y.T and was in charge in the day to day running of the group. This year I was a leading workshop facilitator at the Louth Youth Theatre residential weekend holding workshops on Directing. I have also directed two National Theatre Connection festival productions (Pronoun and Drama Baby).
