Welcome to Shine Drama Workshops

Providing tailor-made workshops that enhance, enrich and educate

Shine Drama Workshops designs and delivers workshops and classes which use the medium of Drama to enhance and enrich the lives of children across Wales, supporting the curriculum (current and the new Welsh curriculum) and  helping them to develop confidence and skills for life. 

 

We design and deliver tailormade workshops in schools and other venues in the public sector.  We pride ourselves on our excellent knowledge of the curriculum and our workshop leaders have much experience working in schools, teaching a wide range of subjects and have particular expertise in Drama. We work with children aged 2- 16 years  both in and out of school,  providing workshops that suit the individual group at that point in their educational journey.  

 

We also work with staff in schools, providing sessions on how Drama can support work in the classroom and how to include simple drama skills and techniques which can be used in any subject area to enrich and enhance pupils learning.  All workshops use drama skills and techniques to practically explore your chosen theme or topic in a practical and safe way.

In addition we offer weekly Drama and confidence classes to children aged two to eight years in Swansea. 

We believe that Drama can be used as a tool to enhance knowledge, develop skills in problem solving, team work and debating as well as building confidence and self - esteem. We prepare young people to be active members in society that can see a variety of viewpoints, make their thoughts and beliefs understood by others.

 

"I worked with Jo as a teacher of Drama for over 7 years. She is an outstanding practitioner who has an excellent rapport with young people. I worked under her as my manager and Head of Drama for many years and she was a constant source of support and guidance. Anyone would be lucky to be taught by Jo. For years, she developed and led a successful department guiding students through their GCSEs and A levels. If you are looking for someone to help you set up a programme for drama or to deliver practical workshops and develop your understanding of how to teach this amazing subject, Jo is the person you want!"
