Children’s & Teenagers Classes

Mel Ryan Drama School Dublin


Life skills for children and teenagers through Music, Drama & Presentation Skills

Ages 3 – 18

Weekly sessions throughout the academic year

With a very different focus to a theatre school or a typical speech & drama class, the main objectives are to build confidence and develop life skills in a fun-filled, no-pressure atmosphere. For this reason the classes are non-exam focused and are restricted to 8 children per class (or 6 for the 3-5 year olds) to allow for plenty of encouragement and individual attention.

Musical Theatre Classes for Children

Musical Theatre & Hip Hop Dance

Ages 3 – 18

Weekly sessions throughout the academic year

This class is action-packed fun!

Similar to a stage-school environment, students have an hour of singing, acting, stage technique, audition preparation and theatre training, followed by an hour of dance/hip hop training. Even though there are larger numbers in this class, great care is taken to give each student equal opportunity to develop further talent.

Presentation Classes for Adults in Dublin

Presentation & Performance Skills for Adults, Levels 1 & 2

(Absolutely no experience necessary for Level 1, participants must complete Level 1 before applying for Level 2, or must have a basic knowledge/some experience of performance/presentation skills)

Level 1


Whether you are working in the home or the workplace, we all need to take time out for fun and self-development. Maybe you have a fear of public speaking? Or perhaps you need to brush up on your presentation skills for work or an upcoming event? Has working at home damaged your sense of self and you need a confidence boost?

Level 2


Those wishing to further explore performance and presentation skills will develop their technique further with a more in-depth look at the skills needed to be an outstanding speaker/performer/presenter.
