Know You. Be You. Drama 🙂

Bespoke workshops and programmes for everyone!

Know You. Be You. Love You. Shine You.

Know You. Be You. Drama is all about learning and self-development through creating a fun and encouraging atmosphere, where children and young people feel free and comfortable to ‘be’ and ‘love’ themselves.

KYBY is an idea birthed from the themes explored in Zara’s book, entitled Ada(2012). Research shows that low self-esteem is a major issue that affects children in schools and the local community. In discovering this, Zara felt it important to raise awareness and address this issue by hosting interactive classes and special public performance evenings to encourage children to step out of their comfort zones to ‘shine’ and express what they have learned.
