Discover The Diamond Academy Of Performing Arts
Welcome to a studio that is unlike any other.
For the performer and non-performer alike, our training is honed to help each individual student reach their full potential.
Mastering the art of public speaking is the greatest single skill you can develop in order to establish strong leadership skills, boost future earning potential and carry yourself confidently and successfully in life.
Modern society demands effective communication and leadership skills to excel, however it presents few opportunities for children to develop these critical life skills.
The Diamond Academy represents a new way of thinking: an innovative studio for learning, where students can explore and develop their communication, performance and leadership skills in a fun and dynamic setting. At our academy, your child will learn skills that will remain with them throughout their lives.
We provide a positive and encouraging learning environment that allows our students to shine.
How We Teach
The Diamond Academy utilizes time-honored traditions of Speech Arts and Drama techniques as a means of developing effective communication, performance and leadership skills; skills which are aimed at teaching our young students to become engaging and articulate speakers, citizens, performers and leaders.
Our group classes are structured to educate through improvisation technique, voice development, and text analyzation and performance in a positive and encouraging setting where students engage with, and learn from, their fellow students as well as perform solo pieces. Students are exposed to and will explore literature from the great writers, poets and playwrights from the English Literature Canon.
At the end of each term, each student will perform selections from the repertoire they have created.
Through our classroom development, recitals, plays, Trinity College of London examination opportunities, and international festivals, each Diamond Academy Student will have many avenues to utilize and develop their unique voice in the world.
Create. Act. Communicate.
Our vision is to equip students with the presentation and performance skills they need to feel confident and succeed in our competitive modern world.
We use a combination of materials and teaching methodologies to share the joys of performance and the written word.
At The Diamond Academy of Performing Arts, our mission is to foster a life-long love of communication and performance while helping students to build their confidence, comprehension, critical thinking, self-esteem and executive functioning skills.
At The Diamond Academy of Performing Arts we believe in:
- Custom Curriculums – no two students are alike and nor should their training be. We cater our lessons to suit each individual.
- Developing Confidence – every child has a voice; at The Diamond Academy we give them the tools to use it effectively.
- Fun & Involvement – Whether one-on-one or in a group, we want all students to leave our classes smiling!
