The ‘Cartwright Drama Studio’ philosophy is strongly tied up in the power of imagination. What makes ‘Cartwright Drama Studio’ different to other acting
classes is the use of unique techniques for improvisation and free thinking which we believe builds confidence, self-growth and self-discovery creating artistic
ideas while at the same time building the key skills of confidence and self-esteem. We encourage our students to lose themselves in creativity and expression.
We work with the voice to build strong theatre presence as well as looking at techniques for TV and film.
