GEST is delighted to offer acting courses for young people aged 6 - 16

Autumn Term 2024:

Interested in submitting to our courses?

Please fill the interest form here to be noticed when we launch the autumn term courses!

Youth Drama Club is a 10-week acting course for both non-native and native English speakers. Through improvisation, games, role-play and text work, we teach acting skills in a friendly and supportive environment. Each age group has a class size of about 16 students, and the course culminates in a performance on stage.


Drama is a fun, creative activity that can be offered to young people of all abilities. The imaginative and playful environment of the Drama Club helps young people develop self-confidence, and performance, team-working and problem-solving skills. Led by GEST’s English speaking professional actors or drama practitioners, there are plenty of opportunities to learn about what happens both on and off stage.

Our Youth Drama Club courses are suitable for both beginners and intermediate students (those who have previously attended GEST Youth Drama Club).
