As an independent children’s theatre school, Knaves offers a very personal approach, which allows each student to shine. In the rehearsal room, we ensure young actors of all abilities and confidence levels, boys and girls, take an active role while having fun. We instill a remarkable degree of commitment, enthusiasm, and energy in our students.
A second qualified teacher helps Jason in all sessions, alongside a teaching assistant, to ensure that each child has the full support they need.
Through the rehearsal process, actors learn collaboration and interdependence skills while building their character into a believable performance that showcases their full understanding of the story and dialogue.
Less confident children are very welcome at Knaves. We specialise in bringing the best out of all children in a caring, nurturing environment that builds trust and will enable your child to feel safe and happy to leave their comfort zone behind and take part in areas not previously thought possible.
Drama courses end with a fully staged and costumed performance in a North London theatre allowing all students the opportunity to perform demanding roles such as Bottom, Lady Macbeth, Malvolio, Viola, Caesar and Brutus, etc.
