Orla Gidea School of Speech & Drama


Orla Gildea runs classes in Speech and Drama for children aged four upwards in Leixlip Youth and Community Centre on Thursdays (Note – Children can join during the term).

Orla enjoys working with young children and watching them grow in confidence as they participate in Drama classes. Orla encourages her students to tap into their imagination and bring their own ideas alive through the medium of drama. She believes in the power and importance of speech and works on encouraging children to improve their fluency and literary skills. This she feels empowers them to express themselves in a meaningful way. Orla’s classes are structured in a lively and fun way to facilitate interaction and participation.

Speech and Drama Grade Examinations are held once a year and certificates are presented to each student. Students also get to perform for parents twice a year.

Orla works as a Professional Drama facilitator with a wide variety of groups; she also provides one to one drama and speech coaching for both adults and children.

You can contact Orla at 087 6756318 or log onto www.orlagildea.com for more information.
