How We Are Different

I was talking to one of the Mothers of a new student today and I asked her why she chose to send her daughter to our programme. Well she gave me a list of reasons and she was right on the button. It reminded me of how we are different. I posted the following item on our Facebook page and we had such a positive response I thought it was worth repeating here.

It's true that we focus on self-development skills for children and young adults. Yes, we do some acting, mime and movement and speech, but the emphasis is not on being a star or the next best thing on stage. It's about being who you want to be and growing, in a fun environment.
