Drama Tuition Solihull
As Spotlight is a stage school not just a dance school we also have weekly lessons in Drama for Solihull students. These Drama classes cover various acting techniques including voice projection, physicalisation, characterisation, accents, emotion and improvisation. Drama is a very creative subject which teaches skills that can be transferred to many other areas, e.g.; giving speeches, speaking in front of classmates at school, debate teams, etc.
