At XtrAct we strive to seek out Drama teachers who not only have experience in the performing arts industry, but also have teacher training from a tertiary institution. Drama is a tool for students beyond acting skills and ensuring our teachers are equipped to facilitate lessons with this in mind is imperative. Often in our classes we require our students to trust us and each other as we steer them outside their comfort zone. Owner, Danielle Brame Whiting, has a clear policy of "Don't try to get it right, don't try to be perfect, just try."
To create more resilient actors, and adults, we must move beyond acting and teach the whole child.
