1: We help young people achieve their potential
Danielle Ismay’s behaviour had left her at risk of exclusion from school and put on a curfew, but after being referred by her school to Acting Out at the Belgrade, she began to focus her energies in a new direction.
Danielle said, “I started coming to sessions at the Belgrade once a week after getting into trouble at school and it really changed my life.”
Danielle was even chosen to take part in a professional Main Stage production of The House of Bernarda Alba when the director, Gadi Roll, decided to cast some young local actors in one of the play’s most visually stunning scenes.
Former Belgrade Drama Worker, Lisa Byrne, said “Danielle had a bit of a shaky start with Acting Out, but once she settled she began to improve massively. She began to feel very proud of her work and as a result she began to flourish. Her passion, determination and love of the work all contributed to her fantastic results, achieving distinctions in both her acting and dance certificates.”
