Grace Studios opened its doors in 2010 and is today an award winning studio. Grace Studios is one of the Sutherland Shire’s largest Speech and Drama schools preparing students for formal, internationally recognised qualifications in the arts. Here, we teach the four 'C's: confidence, creativity, communication and critical thinking. These are invaluable and transferable skills that students can take with them into their personal and professional lives, helping them to succeed in school and in the workplace. Grace Studios is a creative community that promotes inclusion and positive risk taking, helping students to appreciate their own unique qualities, to recognise and value those in others, and to grow into empathetic and passionate leaders.
Our educational services are carefully tailored to map students’ needs and provide rewarding classes for students of all ages and experience levels. The studio provides fun group drama lessons, preparation for AMEB Speech and Drama exams, speech and voice classes, public speaking and communication coaching, HSC Drama tutoring, audition preparation, musical theatre and singing lessons. Students are also encouraged to participate in a range of external performance opportunities, including eisteddfods, exams, auditions, and our annual stage production showcasing students’ work and achievements.
