Acting Classes for Kids

There is no doubt your child will love our state of the art acting program and we hope you will love that we create a safe space to challenge kids creative boundaries. We currently do this online and, once world events stabilise, we will continue to run face to face classes as well. Everyday we have the pleasure of seeing our students test their skills, push the limits they've placed on themselves and reach new heights in confidence, performance ability and communication skills. Acting and drama is one of the most powerful tools for giving kids life skills that will set them up for a wonderfully successful future...but more than that it creates an opportunity for them to play, have fun and keep that beautiful colour of imagination and creativity in their life. We constantly get the feedback from parents that their children have found themselves again, they just feel like themselves when they are at class, they see them grow in confidence across all areas of their lives. It is exciting for us that we can do what we love...teaching kids a contemporary high energy acting program...and the kids feel inspired, empowered and supported to explore their creativity.

What's our secret? Kids are naturally courageous if they feel safe. Our activities are fun, collaborative, and high energy and we have created the AAA Safety Net Philosophy so your child will feel safe to take creative risks and stretch their personal boundaries. The safety net philosophy is all about no paying out, no put downs and total support for the ensemble. Every student and teacher is asked to focus on positivity and to support their peers throughout every class, workshop and camp.

We've taught over 50,000 young people since 1994 in after school acting classes, school programs, holiday workshops and acting camps. Our curriculum is innovative, and constantly updated to ensure students are getting the latest acting techniques. These kids acting classes are unique in Brisbane as they specialise in Acting for Green Screen and Devising Theatre. Please give us a call for more information: 0412 728 628.

You will be inspired by what a group of young creatives can achieve in the safety net environment. We have been creating film and theatre magic with young people for 20 years. Consequently we have developed exciting ways of working with young people to create quality entertainment outcomes. Most of all our students learn the true magic of storytelling. As a result your child will develop the skills of devising, collaboration, team work, clear communication, conflict resolution, problem solving and lateral thinking. Above all they can let their creativity and confidence shine.


Brendan Glanville, the founder of the AAA, is a qualified Teacher. He has a solid focus in teaching Primary aged students in engaging and fun ways. In addition all AAA staff have Blue Cards and are trained in the Safety Net philosophy. Most of all it means total support for the ensemble. In practical terms it fosters inclusivity and creates a safe space to take creative risks. Students feel confident to find out who they are and more importantly who they want to become.
