These classes changed my life.  I was training as a teacher and had serious confidence issues which was very stressful for me.  Sioux was such a supportive and positive tutor who encourages everyone to be the best version of themselves that they can. The class content was always so fresh and exciting that my Tuesday class became the highlight of my week.  My confidence just soared after several terms and I lost my anxiety about being in front of a class.  I highly recommend Cutting Edge Drama.  (Andrea – Teacher)
I work in a very driven and competitive industry, so I went along to these classes for the total escapism as mentioned on the website.  They were not wrong!  I found the hour and a half  a week that I spent in the class was enough to recharge me for the week ahead at work.  The added benefit was that my presentation skills also went up to the next level.  (Alex – IT Specialist)

Classes run all year on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the Grey Lynn Community Centre
