We returned to Rugby at 9.45am on Thursday morning (30/10/14) after what was a truly unforgettable 9th international drama trip in the last 15 years.  

The trip was very successful. Most importantly the students grew as people as their new experiences with others, familiar and otherwise, challenged them to be open and like the artists we studied, see people and the world around us with new, generous and playful eyes! It was a privilege to behold. The students enjoyed developing their creative drama skills and they valued the practitioners who challenged them with infectious positivity and a real sense of fun. 

This is what the students thought:

‘I found this trip excellent and a confidence booster for me.’ Lotty
‘I loved this drama experience because it made me feel much more confident in myself and while doing drama.’ Imogen
