schamozzle drama classes for kids

Helping to Grow Confident, Kind & Creative Kids.

Our classes are different! Each week we build a shared, whole group, improvised story. There are no costumes, concerts, scripts, starring or minor roles. Instead, we use imagination to create other worlds and situations where we encounter challenges and work collaboratively to solve problems. Through storytelling, we empower kids and help them to make sense of the world. By taking on roles and in effect walking in the shoes of others, we understand different perspectives and learn about kindness and empathy. In our classes, every kid’s voice is heard. The process is empowering, confidence building and, above all, fun!

What they're saying

"When I was a child, I was lucky enough to be part of drama classes every Saturday for many years. There were no elaborate performances, costumes or make up. Each week we acted out an open-ended imaginative scenario as a group. It had a huge impact on my confidence and creativity. When I went looking for a drama class for my children, I wanted to find a similar supportive and stimulating environment. Schamozzle was a remarkable find. Suzanne creates classes each week that are thoughtful and engaging. My children have been going for years and absolutely love it."

"My favourite part was when we were hiding from JJ the wolf and yelled Watch out JJ! I also felt excited and really joyful. Drama was really exciting. I wish I can have drama again. (Especially with Suzanne Cox)."

Drama gave me confidence to take risks. At school I was too embarrassed to tell a joke in front of the class, but after two terms of drama class I was much more relaxed. Next time I gave a speech to the class I used humour and an accent to match my character. It was so much fun! The class laughed and the teacher said that I am going to end up on a stage one day! I am so glad I did drama with Suzanne.

"Frances has been enjoying Schamozzle drama classes with Suzanne since she was in kindergarten and she's in grade 6 now! As she told me "I've been going to drama almost my whole life!" Frances has a lot of fun at the classes and she's always smiling when I pick her up. Schamozzle is such a great creative outlet for France and the classes have given her a lot of confidence."

"I liked it because we got to pretend to use fake tools. I really thought it was real digging a hole for the wolf to get to the river. I felt scared it was great."

"My son Zach was shy and reluctant to get into drama but was made to feel welcome by the class and teacher in the first session and over the following weeks it was great to see the encouragement he received  really boost his confidence and bring him out of his shell."
