Learn, Imagine, Explore...
Our Developmental Drama classes are for ages 2 1/2 - 10. We run from our own venue, The Monkey Hoose in Kingsknowe, Edinburgh and also work in both mainstream and special needs school, nurseries and with a variety of charity organisations.
We have successfully been running for 7 years now, offering themed, fun drama classes which focus on children learning, imagining and exploring in each class. we do not focus on performance, we focus on building personal and social skills through each session. As well as building confidence and the ability to be expressive in a safe and structured environment.
Our classes are all very covid safe and follow the latest Government guidance.
Here's a little warm up to get you energised!
Don't just take our word for it...
Love the mix of activities and music, love the themes and the thread of the story, love the focus on imaginative play and nice wee touch in certificates given at the end of each class. (Kate, Mum of Jess, 2)
I like singing the Monkey Drama song! (Katie, 4)
My little girl (2 and a half) absolutely loves monkey drama. She talks about it all the time and is always incorporating the monkey drama adventures into her everyday play. It is great for encouraging imaginative play and creativity. I can't recommended highly enough :) (Alison, mum of Annabel 2 1/2 )
My wee three year old is buzzin about monkey drama. Had a blast and Alana welcomed her one year old wee bro into the mix too which was brilliant. Lookin forward to next week! (Sharon, mum of Sadie 3, and Jackson 16 Months)
I liked playing the bagpipes for Nessie! (Caris, 5)
Being only 2 years and 7 months, I was a little apprehensive about bringing my daughter to a 'drama class'. However, my fears were completely misplaced. You ran a fantastic session. All the kids seemed to really engage with what you were doing and Anna Marie has been taking about Drama Monkey a lot since her visit.
