The ADK was founded in 1939, and has had many successful years of teaching and introducing, actors, actresses, directors, writers, etc into the entertainment industry. We have had many local South African talent study through the ADK, and many of them are still active within the ADK. Amongst these are Henry Mylne, David Rees, Marius Weyers, to name but a few.
Drama classes in English and Afrikaans
We teach drama classes in both English and Afrikaans, and have small classes so that your children get individual attention and instruction. This means that we can fine-tune their acting and speech skills, rather than just teaching general drama skills in a big group setting.
