Every child needs a little love, a little hope and someone who believes in them.
That’s exactly what our Helen O’Grady drama classes are about – believing in children and giving them the confidence to believe in themselves.
Helen O’Grady Oldham is run by Wendy Orrell, a former high school teacher who is passionate about young people and their ability to thrive with the help of good mentoring and encouragement.
After 11 years in The Academy, Wendy can bear testament to the wonderful effects the programme has had on hundreds of students who have taken advantage of the opportunity this “self-development through drama” programme gives them. She has watched shy children find their voice, confident children learn leadership skills, children with special needs find acceptance and new friends. But above all, she has seen all children enjoy themselves in a safe, nurturing environment. Please read more about Wendy below…
Wendy is supported by two very talented and enthusiastic teachers who she wouldn’t swap for the world! Kirsty is a performing arts graduate with specialist training in autism, epilepsy, ADHD and other special needs. Clare is a dance, drama and theatre graduate as well as a budding actor who has appeared in many productions on stage and even TV. Please read more about Kirsty and Clare below…
Our classes are about using drama to help children develop into confident young people with good self-esteem and great life skills such as listening, speaking and social skills.
We encourage and nurture children of all ages and abilities – from five year-olds to 17-year olds. There is a place for everyone in our sessions and productions – from aspiring young performers to those who feel shy and self-conscious.
Helen O’Grady Oldham classes are designed to be fun, energetic, inspiring and empowering. They are held in Norden, Stalybridge, Ashton, Shaw, Littleborough, Hebden Bridge and Middleton. Please see the our classes page for times and venues…
