What is Love Drama?

Love Drama Logo 2020

Love Drama is based in Edinburgh, The Lothians and The Scottish Borders. Our classes are packed with fun and exciting activities led by professional drama practitioners. We offer a range of different performance styles which include improvisation, devising and script work. We never force a child to perform if they don’t want to. Instead, we offer alternative ways of being involved such as costume design, lights and sound. We are affiliated with Children’s University and all our classes and holiday activities count towards learning hours!

Love Drama aims to inspire confidence through creativity.

Love Drama’s Aims;

1) To create a safe environment which allows children and young people to explore their creative ideas.

2) To recognise the potential in every child and young person and work with them to grow and develop their skills.

3) To promote the valuable skills that drama provides such as boosted confidence, higher self esteem, more effective communication skills, improved team work and strong performance skills.

4) To encourage child led drama workshops with the children and young people’s ideas taking centre stage.

Love Drama offers opportunities for young people aged 16 and over to volunteer in our Weekly Classes. With continuous support and mentoring, we can help young people gain specific volunteering certificates such as the Saltire Awards; awards recognised by the Scottish Government and looked upon favourably by employers. Volunteering is a fantastic way for young people also use their spare time well, improve or learn skills, gain confidence working with children, gain experience within the drama industry, improve their health and wellbeing and gain a reference for their CV!

“Working with Love Drama has been one of the best jobs I have ever had. The way the staff interact with the children is something unique and different from anywhere else I have seen or worked with. The kids seemed to enjoy every minute of their time and were eager and keen to learn, perform and have fun with everything they did. Charly’s lesson plans are incredibly varied and a bundle of joy for not just the kids but also her staff, who she keeps a very close and professional manner with. Anyone coming to Love Drama, whether staff or child, would find the experience incredibly worthwhile and entertaining”
