Building Confidence in Beaulieu!

Acting in Beaulieu! Saturday morning classes for all ages are fantastic!
Wonderful friendships are made!

Improvisation is so important and this term we brought in dress up days- the students love to dress up and bring props to enhance their performance!

One of the greatest gifts we can gain is that of natural confidence. When we overcome our fears and anxieties, our perspective of the world changes - we become positive people. 

The Academy runs programmes for different age-groups of children from 3-18 years and Adults. We use an international curriculum which has been uniquely designed, through group work, to bring out the best in everyone. 
Anyone can learn how to be confident and the shyest of people can overcome their fears by learning about the feelings of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.

Classes are run in the following areas of Pretoria: Faerie Glen, Brooklyn, Annlin, Erasmia, Midrand, Weirda Park, Irene and Midstream.

The Academy also runs drama programmes for schools in Pretoria as part of their in-school curriculum. If you would like to find out more, visit our website:

Did you know that the Helen O'Grady Drama Academy offers awesome Adult classes?


 The Adult programme, for ages 18 years and over, we offer in the Academy is one of self development. Our prime aim is to give students ongoing confidence and skill in verbal communication. We do this through a balanced theatre arts programme covering speech, advanced improvisation, structured small group improvisation, script work, character analysis and production & film techniques. Apart from developing confidence for Public Speaking, Presentation Skills and Performance skills, the classes are also a great way to make new friends and be part of a focused group.
The programme helps those in business become more confident and those who act to follow their dreams. Being a good communicator is essential for future life-long success and we will help you to achieve this with our expert teachers.

Our class runs as follows:


Kykkos Hall, Hellenic Community of Pretoria (Greek Church) Cnr Roper & Lynnwood       

For more information please email or call 082 909 1630.

Fridays are a favourite Day!

Every Friday afternoon we run our Drama programme in Wierda Park and at Sagewood School.
It is always good to end the week on a high!
