My daughter Husai loves drama and you guys makes her shine. She is a wonderful girl and this is her calling. Drama Mama gives her confidence and good role models and she loves this. As a mom, I am very happy each day that she comes home and tells me what she learns. So, thanks for all you do!
Marlo has a unique life. She has a brother with Autism. He is in therapy 5 days a week and is constantly going to specialists. Because of this, Marlo can sometimes feel second fiddle. We do so much to try to accommodate, but it weighs heavily on our minds and conscience. With this program, Marlo was given a chance to be completely in the spotlight. She was allowed to blossom and shine. She loved the skills she learned and practiced them with us often at home. The performance was especially touching for all of us. All of the family came to watch her (parents, grandparents and friends). She did spectacular. She had her moment in the spotlight and she shined bright. We recorded the moment to remember and she talks about it still. Thank you for providing Marlo a venue to feel important, unique and special.
All our best,
Amelie absolutely loves Drama Kids. She has learned how to project her voice and use phrasing and emphasis to convey different messages. She has also learned to understand the difference between acting and real-life. For example, she learned that if someone acts mad at you in a skit, they aren’t really mad at you when it’s over. Or if people laugh at you on stage, they aren’t making fun of you, they are enjoying the performance. She always jumps at the opportunity to participate in any Drama Kids activity. She had so much fun dancing and singing in the Drama Mamas Video. She loved her Friday classes so much that she wanted a more involved opportunity for acting and auditioned for the Bellevue Youth Theater. She had her debut in Robin Hood last weekend and is such a little personality on the stage. She had the audience laughing repeatedly with her line delivery.
Hi Lisa, I really wanted to thank you for your time and so much encouragement. It really worked and it build Jackie from inside out, which is my objective. Your lessons were extremely valuable and she would not be successful without them. I hope to be able to work with you in the future, whether in a group or private session.
Hana – Jackie’s mom
“I am the co-VP of programs and the chair for extracurricular programming at Emily Dickinson Elementary in Redmond, Washington. In the summer of 2010 I was contacted by Lisa Loomis as she was interested in bringing DramaKids into our school. As I had had some previous interest in a drama program I chose to give DramaKids a try. The program has been excellent. The kids have really enjoyed it and the DramaKids staff is first rate. I had very high registration for the program. So high, that we needed to add a second class to our schedule. Lisa was very responsive to the added demand and on the first day she came ready with 2 additional instructors. Further, it is always challenging during the first few weeks of class to make sure we track down all of the kids, and Lisa worked successfully to get all of them in the right place. Her communication has been first rate and working with Lisa and DramaKids has been a real pleasure. We have booked DramaKids for a second session in Emily Dickinson and expect it to be as successful this time around.”
Adam, our youngest, tends to be the very shy type, even when around people he has known for a long time. However, more recently, he has “bloomed” in his personality and his confidence.
When I saw Adam give his first performance with his group, I knew that Drama Kids was what he needed all along. A parent usually knows what potential is in their children; in this case, it took Drama Kids to bring that to the surface.
I just wanted to tell you (and Mr. Mark if you could pass it along) that my kids really enjoyed themselves and got a lot out of your class. And I am so glad that I volunteered and got to see the process!! It was great! Yesterday they auditioned for the Missoula play that our school is doing and I could see their confidence shining through. So thanks!
