Welcome to NLD

Northern Lights Drama is a highly respected independent drama school and agency that delivers Stage and Screen training for 4 – 18 years in East Yorkshire.

NLD Classes

LIGHTS, CAMERA…ACTION! Our signature 1.5-hour weekly class that introduces children to the world of STAGE & SCREEN. Split into 3 terms, we focus on ‘STAGE’ (all things theatrical, acting technique, character work, improv, devising, script work), ‘SCREEN’ (the world of Film & TV, a huge selection of real scripts, life on set, the roles of cast and crew, self-taping, filming and screenings) and a PERFORMANCE term putting everything we’ve learnt into practice! An exceptional weekly class for budding young performers of all abilities.

Saturday Stage School

A 3-hour weekly session for young performers looking to learn more about the industry and take their skills to the next level. Each week pupils work in age appropriate groups taking part in focused ACTING (strong focus on film & TV), SINGING (voice, acting through song & voiceover work) and DANCE (dynamic choreography & routines from hit musicals) on rotation. PLUS special guest visits from Industry Professionals (Casting Directors, Film & TV cast & crew, West End performers) to give pupils a real insight into all areas the industry.
