What is LAMDA, and why is it good for your kids?
Review of LAMDA - The London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (London) by Olympia111

Advantages: The fact you have done Lamda in your early years, goes in your CV, and is very good in getting job
Disadvantages: It only has 1 lesson a week.

LAMDA stands for London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art, and it helps you children in Drama, and acting, and stepping into other peoples shoes. It helps you open your mind, and think in all sorts of ways, and think of all different ideas. I use to do LA ... Read review

I took many LAMDA and RADA exams when I was a child, but I can't say they were any help in getting me a job. Perhaps you mean helpful in getting a job involved with the Arts? by Bollinger28

Sorry but there is not enough information or opinion in this review to make it helpful from the point of view of a consumer. If you add anything, please leave a message in my guestbook and I will return to re-rate. by TheHairyGodmother
Sorry but this really doesn't tell me much about the actual school. I've no idea what comments you're answering, meaning that you've left me confused. Also you really could do with reading through this and using a spell checker, not spelling the School's name correctly really doesn't help your case. by sandemp

Step Up Music Theatre School- a brilliant part time stage school
Review of Step Up Music Theatre School by AnneLorraine1

Advantages: A wonderful supportive atmosphere offering many opportunities
Disadvantages: None

My daughter used to attend a stage school called 'Rascals' from the age of seven to thirteen. Initially, I decided to send her to a stage school as she wanted to join a club outside of school, and I thought a little acting, singing and dancing would help ... Read review

Footsteps Theatre School: Dance, drama and song like Glee!!
Review of Footsteps Theatre School (Bradford) by NeilOWhite

Advantages: Great teachers, great standards, great atmosphere.
Disadvantages: Premises can become crowded outside classrooms.

We wanted to find the right dance school for our daughter Evelyn. Of course we wanted a high level of professional tutoring, but we also wanted the atmosphere to be right - we wanted her to learn with fun! So we asked around, and a friend couldn't recomm ... Read review

Stage 84 (Bradford) My Own Personal Viewpoint
Review of Stage 84 (Bingley) by bobster591

Advantages: Good reputation for getting a part in Corrie
Disadvantages: expensive, very time consuming, in my opinion oppressive and overbearing

my eldest daughter attended Stage 84 and, initially, enjoyed it. Would you be happy to leave your child in the care of individuals who feel it is appropriate to blow whistles at the children should they dare not obey their every command? This includes ... Read review

Great drama classes for beginners
Review of City Acting (London) by priscilla28

Advantages: Class for beginners, fun and friendly
Disadvantages: Not sure really.. :)

I just took a city acting drama course in Angel in London. The studio is 5 min from the tube. It was a beginners class in which we were 16 to attend (class was full). 25-35 year old average I would say. Mixed gender. I know I am very precise on the set-up ... Read review

The City Acting drama class gave me much more than I expected
Review of City Acting (London) by Alex_dup

Advantages: Excellent value for money. Professional and Fun.
Disadvantages: Classes could last a little bit longer but to be honest I was drained out after the 2 hours.

I took a City Acting drama course for beginners in London earlier this year to improve my confidence. I loved it and got what I wanted! I developed my voice, body language awareness. We played on text and impros (very funny). I loved a game that make you ... Read review

Review of Rose Bruford College of Speech & Drama (London) by DaveScant

Advantages: Great people, great place
Disadvantages: Short first audition, hard work

Rose Bruford is like most top quality drama schools, unique. It attracts a relaxed but determined persona, and is one of the only places I have seen where they do not try and make you fit their 'mould', they meet you wherever you are in your ability and h ... Read review

Auditioning for East 15
