GETTING TO KNOW OUR NEW DRAMA TEACHER : CHRISTINE
CHRISTINE has previously sung in professional theatre in New Zealand and Australia, and run a successful singing and drama school in Auckland. She has experience directing, tutoring, musical directing and choreographing in community theatre. Her passion is drama and musical theatre and has been heavily involved in youth community theatre, teaching children; drama, dance and singing skills.
An example of one of her productions can be found on YouTube, (Cats of Ponsonby https://youtu.be/chF-XFPfXvg). The students in this production were all novices and were taught the singing, and drama skills for this production.
Her students sat their Trinity College of London Musical Theatre Exams (grades 1-8 and A.T.C.L) and they all achieved Distinction in these exams. Examiners have commented on their strong drama, singing and musical ability; excellent technical skills in drama, singing and dance, and how well prepared they were.
We know Christine will take our drama students, new and existing, to the next level, which is clearly evidenced by her extensive previous work with students. She is a very fun, bubbly person who greatly inspires others. We are very lucky to have her work with our team and she's excited at the possibilities as well.
