Students learn public speaking, acting and drama skills, vocal skills (quality, articulation, grammar), how to read poetry and tell stories.

Classes are small to ensure children receive specialised, one-on-one attention so enrol early to secure space. This class runs over 8 weeks.

"This course is fun, exciting and enjoyable. I love the improvisations, skits, poems and characterisations."

Examinations: Professional certificate and diploma qualifications are offered through Speech NZ and the Trinity College of London. Exams are not compulsory.

Teaching artist Alex Ellis has trained in Speech and Drama since the age of 7, taking part in competitions as well as completing exams for the New Zealand Speech Board and Trinity College London. Alex’s love for speech and drama is infectious and children adore her classes. In 2005 Alex created the Flaxworks Theatre Company with Phil Ormsby and is a producer, publicist and actor who performs nationally and internationally.

Shine Speech & Drama classes inspire confidence and imagination in kids, helping them to communicate effectively and build self-belief, while having fun of course! Classes are tailor-made for building confidence, individual growth and learning.

Kids learn to speak more confidently, communicate more effectively, improve their listening skills and use their imaginations. Shine School of Confidence Shine was founded by Nina Burchett, who has acted in film, theatre and television in New Zealand, Australia, the UK and USA.
