Who is The Drama Class (TDC)?
Founded in January 2012, film industry professional and acting instructor Michele Partridge opened the award-winning The Drama Class in White Rock as there was a lack of creative spaces for performing artists to learn their craft. Our mission statement is simple.
Our training has to be FUN and EDUCATIONAL.
We provide a nurturing and inspiring environment for actors of all ages to learn, create and perform.
We have 10 instructors who teach our session programs and every session we offer one-day workshops with guest instructors who are the best in their field.
We are so thrilled to be voted as a Finalist in the "Top Performing Arts Studios" (2019) category in the Peace Arch News "Best of the Peninsula" Reader's Poll.
We were recently humbled and honoured to receive the "Best Supporter of the Arts" award from the South Surrey & White Rock Chamber of Commerce. (2018)
We are always receiving 5 Star Reviews on Google.
"Hello TDC! This is what we can we say to all of you. "The Drama Class is a huge blessing & guiding light to our family! Thank you for developing the confidence and getting the best out of our son Haven. Thank you for creating such a fun, safe and inspiring place to express the artist within. We really appreciate your patience, care, professionalism and passion for what you do. After 2 weeks in Kids Drama Class with Lynda & Laine, Haven got a role in a horror film. Thank you Michelle and the rest of the Team. It’s a Thanksgiving indeed! Cheers. Blessings & Gratitude, Vivero Family”
What Makes The Drama Class So Unique?
I’ve been teaching for over 24 years and this is my 3rd acting studio and it’s been open since 2012. I just love it!
I’m constantly inspired by my students and I’m sure I speak for all of our instructors when I say we love watching our students learn and achieve their acting goals. As an actor, you NEVER stop learning about yourself and the process of acting.
Our skilled instructors are working professionals in our industry and teach our programs on a regular basis and we also offer one day workshops throughout the year hosted by some of Vancouver’s best in the film industry.
We not only offer fabulous training in the craft of acting but we also offer:
We’re so pleased you’ve chosen The Drama Class to continue learning about the craft of acting.
