  • The castle drama workshop was appropriately pitched for the ages and abilities of the nursery children. Poppy was energetic, engaging and very positive with all the children. the activities were fun and well paced and the children had a great time joining in- particularly with the drama games that the session started with. They also learned about the people who would have lived in castles long ago. Thanks for a fun workshop!

  • As one of the directors for Lindfield Arts Festival 2014 I was very excited by the prospect of having Kim and JK Theatre Arts involved in another festival. Knowing how popular and successful her previous workshops and performances had been I had high expectations and I wasn’t disappointed.

    Kim’s enthusiasm and inspiring ideas were wonderful and the children involved in the workshops clearly agreed. I was lucky to sit in and observe the children rehearsing whilst Kim directed them. They listened with baited breath and performed with energy, it was a joy to watch. I’m looking forward to seeing the end result at the festival this weekend!

    I would highly recommend JK Theatre Arts to any parent thinking of sending their children to their classes and to any business wanting to work corporately with this fantastic theatre company. recommend the workshop as a brilliant local opportunity which was high quality and lots of fun.

  • All the students really enjoyed the street dance workshop, they were able to create a really good dance routine by the end of the session which they were proud to show off to the youth group. For many of the young people this was the first time they were taken part in an opportunity like this in their lives.

  • My children attended the Days of Dahl 3 day workshop in the Easter
    holidays. The show given on the last day was superb, you could see how much all the children enjoyed it and the hard work that they and the teachers had put into it. It was the first time Thomas had done anything like this and he and his sister came out asking if could they go to the one in the Summer holidays!

  • Kim has really helped me understand what it means to deliver an engaging and interesting speech/presentation. In our one to one session she helped me overcome issues which I’d been struggling to get over for a while and really boosted my confidence. I went on to deliver a fantastic presentation which received great feedback and I cannot thank Kim enough for her guidance and encouragement.
