A drama school for children up to the age of 13 which opened during the pandemic is flourishing.
Operating from Loud Studios in Milnrow and Crimble Croft Community Centre in Heywood, the Mandy Tiffany drama classes teach LAMDA qualifications (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) to over 100 children across six classes.
The school was started by mother of one Mandy Tiffany, 28, of Wardle, during the pandemic in August 2020.
The recent cohort of students who took their exams in July all received distinction passes, the highest mark available.
Mandy, who is also LAMDA qualified, said: “This is just the beginning with future plans coming together as I believe drama should be something schools teach, especially with the benefits it brings such as confidence building, teamwork and concentration.
“Drama is mental building as well as physical. It helps bring their emotions to life and channel them into something they may not be able to do in everyday life.
“This has been such an exciting year and I am so proud of what we have already achieved.”
Mandy is also working in partnership with Wardle Academy, teaching LAMDA to their students, as well as meeting with local primary schools to teach drama as part of enrichment programmes and extra curriculum activities.
