Helen O'Grady Rocking After-School Activities in New Cairo!

The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy is now holding 'After-School' classes for the New Cairo British International School & Modern Education School!

The students of these schools are having a blast exploring and learning through play. Our classes are giving them an opportunity to be on their feet and learn in ways that are completely different from a traditional school format. Our classes help them feel like they can express themselves as we help them with their confidence, self-esteem, communication & performance skills! 

We are very proud and happy to have these schools a part of our program along side our studio classes.

Why Developmental Drama is So Vital to a Child.

It was Plato, the infamous Greek Philosopher, who said "Life must be lived as play". At the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy, our classes are geared towards one direction: Discovery through Play.

Drama isn't just about acting. Drama is a tool that can be used to develop confidence, self-esteem, communication & performance skills.

Imagine a child who faces trouble speaking around strangers. Who tends to be quiet in situations that intimidate them. Now, imagine that same child guided by constant positive reinforcement, a safe environment, and constant challenges to their imagination that helps them let go and allow their personality to prevail. That is our goal at the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy.

We strive that our students do just that. Through Drama, we aim to relax the tensions placed upon a child's personality by giving them the opportunity to have a voice. The one way that we can do that is in a playful environment.

Once we show our students the endless roads of their imagination, their confidence automatically increases. Even Einstein declared "Imagination is more important than Knowledge".

Youth Drama Class is All Play & Work at the Same Time!

The Youth Theatre class in Arabella has been ongoing now for the first 2 weeks of the academic year. The class covers a dynamic, comprehensive program that works to develop ages of 13-18 to increase their confidence & speaking ability to building blocks for those interested in an acting career. 

All smiles and laughter, this class keeps our students engaged and gives them a chance to release some stress they may have from their hectic student lives. While it may seem like all laughs and giggles, the development of self-esteem, confidence, performance & speaking skills of the students is happening without them even feeling like they are doing any work. 

The class is held every Wednesday at Arabella Country Club at 7:30pm to 8:30pm.

To register your child or for any more information on our other classes for other age groups, please feel free to contact us through:
