Welcome to our brand new Online Drama Classes!
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic and the recent closure of our schools, we at Big Bold Youth CIC have decided to invest in online resources for our students to continue their passion for drama while at home.
We believe that drama is one of the most important parts of a child’s education, teaching them valuable new skills in a fun and creative way. We also think that all young people should have access to regular drama activities in their area.

Commonly Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why join an online drama class?
Until 17th March 2020, Big Bold Youth CIC led regular drama classes for young people aged 6-18 across the UK, with over 100 weekly enrolments. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person classes were brought to a halt; however, our team have been working incredibly hard over the last couple of weeks to develop a brand new way for young people to experience drama – virtually.
Each class lasts 30 minutes with only four students per session for our group classes and two students per session for our LAMDA classes. Taught by professional actors, students benefit from gaining confidence, having fun, making friends and learning all the skills used in drama.
Plus (and we’re sure you’ll agree) it gives mums and dads across the country a well deserved break!
Every class is a new experience for our students! Even though our classes have gone digital, they still involve a huge amount of fun, education and movement.
All our group classes involve a quick warm up, followed by drama games and exercises to promote ensemble development, improvisational skills, vocal and physical expression as well as confidence building. Plus, they’ll be working on some very exciting scripts over the next couple of months!
Our 1:1 coaching classes offer students a chance to work with one of our expert teachers on a variety of skills by themselves – from monologues/duologues and poems, to characterisation development and vocal/physical expression.
Who can sign-up?
Although a lot of our students who have booked into our online classes have come from our original in-person sessions, anyone between the ages of 6-18 years can book onto our online classes from anywhere in the country!

How much does it cost?
As an national award winning not-for-profit organisation with a mission to provide affordable and accessible drama activities for young people, we are very much aware of the financial constraints that COVID-19 have caused across the world. As such, we have worked extremely hard to keep our fees as low as possible.
Our group classes, including LAMDA, cost just £5 per session and you have the option to book in for just one session or multiple sessions.
Our 1:1 coaching sessions start at just £12.00 for 30 minutes; however, as part of our virtual drama platform launch, we are currently offering 20% off! Plus, as usual, we offer 50% off for siblings – to take advantage of this offer, please email us before booking online.
What’s the difference between a group class and 1:1 coaching?
The main difference between our group classes and 1:1 coaching is the number of students – our group drama classes have up to four students per session and our group LAMDA classes have up to two students per session, whereas our 1:1 coaching sessions have a maximum of one student per session (unless a sibling wants to join in).
