Dragon Drama LogoDragon Drama provides drama workshops and holiday events with a difference, where children are encouraged to let their imagination run free and build the confidence to express it. Rossy (founder and artistic director) grew up backstage at theatres all over the country, joined Questors Theatre in Ealing, then completed her drama education at Aberystwyth University. Since establishing Dragon Drama in 1993, she has made it her life’s work to spread the word about creativity, taking Dragon Drama into a variety of settings including libraries, schools, and festivals, as well as running workshops and parties. Along the way, Dragon Drama has developed a unique blend of acting exercises, group theatre games, and improvisational techniques.

Dragon Drama rehearsalAt Dragon Drama workshops, all children are seen as fantastic young performers, and the main thing is for them to be natural, non-competitive and, above all, happy. Rossy runs all the workshops personally, knows each child by name, and glories in their individuality. The aim is to encourage creative thought and banish any fear of failure – helping children in whatever they decide to do later in life. Workshops take place during term-time on Wednesdays and Thursdays, and are for children in Reception up to Year 9 (split into five age categories), and there is a Youth Performance Workshop for children aged 15 and over. Reception to Year 4 workshops last one hour, whereas Years 5 to 9 workshops and the Youth Performance Workshop last an hour and a half.

Dragon Drama performanceDragon Drama also puts on camps and events during the holidays – children devised their own play during the recent summer and Easter camps, and took part in an incredible pre-Christmas event. They were also behind 2014’s Spooky Halloween Tour at Strawberry Hill House, where Rossy played Old Madge, the zombie witch brought back to life when some children discovered the spell that would release her!

As well as all the ‘just-for-fun’ activities, Dragon Drama has an excellent track record in preparing children for a range of LAMDA exams if they want to pursue drama further. They also provide an Acting Agency service and regularly send their young dragons up for a select set of castings.
