After 15 years of offering courses for young people, our Youth Drama (12 and under) options are taking a hiatus. Our Teen Acting and Adult courses are continuing!
We hope to return to youth drama offerings later in 2023.
We have created over 30 original devised youth and teen theatre performances, and provided opportunities for hundreds of youths to develope creativity and confidence. The break in our services during COVID-19 meant that a lot of our courses had to begin again from scratch to build momentum, and unfortunately the Youth Drama suffered the most. We hope to see you again! Please do Sign Up for our Newletter to receive future information.
Overview of Course options
Drama and Acting courses are available for young people according to their ages, and are based in the Flying Turtle Studio (formerly the Abbey School of Drama), at 27 Pearse Street, Dublin D02K037.
Courses between September and June are on Saturdays for 7-12 weeks depending on the term, and include presentation performances in the Spring term. The Autumn and Winter terms are for studio process and development work that leads to the Spring performance. The summer months will have youth drama for fun camps for each age group.
COVID-19: Our live classes follow COVID-19 guidelines with small class size, social distancing, ventilation, sanitizing and our HEPA Air Filter in the studio.

All young people’s courses incorporate the same essential techniques used in acting classes and will work on vocal and physical expression, developing imagination, engaging in a collaborative ensemble, developing character and narrative, and strengthening the ability to focus. The objectives of young people’s classes are to use the techniques of drama build the self esteem of the student, and to have a fantastic time while doing it!
The acting school features an international team of specialised tutors with extensive training and cross-over experience in teaching, acting, directing, writing and producing. Our instructors are Guarda vetted and professionally trained in the process of acting and how to facilitate for the particular ages they are working with.
