Drama Lessons

For age 6-17 years

What Large Drama Schools Won't Tell You

Over the past 10 years, many parents have contacted me enquiring about drama lessons. Typically, their child would have participated in a large group drama class at their school, or at a local performing art school.

What I have noticed there are a few things that many of those parents say:

“Steph doesn’t want to do drama, singing and dance. She just wants to do drama!”

“All I saw Sarah do during her school production, was sing at the back and do a few actions. I barely saw her”

“Conor is a bit shy, and he gets lost in a large group of more confident kids”

The parent felt that their child was being lost in a sea of other children.  So I was determined to build a drama programme that gives every child a chance to shine

What is this program? I would love to tell you more….

How Dino Got Into Performing Arts School At The Age Of 12!

Dino attended lessons at Hikari Arts from 2014 to 2015. He worked with Nina on perfecting his acting and musical theatre pieces, so he could be audition ready.  Dino’s hard work paid off, when he successfully auditioned for Tring Performing Arts school, where he was offered one of only two scholarships! 

Dino is now studying at E-15 Acting School on the BA Hons programme. 

Dino's Audition Performance

"Dino sailed through the 1st Audition for Tring Park and was invited back to audition for a Scholarship. Nina was an inspirational teacher giving encouragement throughout the lessons. Dino was offered one of only two scholarships available! I have no doubt that without Nina’s help he would not have achieved the Scholarship and would like to say a really BIG Thank You to Nina and Hikari Arts".

Dino's Mum

Performance Achievements

‘For Alfie, performing in the Hikari Arts show was not just the highlight of their  musical journey, but one of the highlights of their life’ – Studio Parent


"I've been very lucky to have been given some great opportunities to work and act alongside some incredible actors. Nina has really been a dream to work with. I came into this business with barely any acting experience and I was very determined on improving and working on my craft. Nina's lessons have really opened my eyes and taught me so much. One of the most valuable things I've learnt is through the expression of not just dialogue, but through our bodies."
Tommy Hatto
Drama student from 2016-2017
"Since finishing lessons I have taught children drama and dance in Los Angeles and been a character performer at Nickelodeon Land in Blackpool Pleasure Beach. The lessons gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams, the skills to manage auditions, approach casting directors, and identify how to use my strengths and weaknesses to the best of my ability. Without Nina’s wonderful positivity, extensive knowledge, and passion for her business I would not be where I am today. Thank you very much Nina!"

Student in 2015
