They create endless opportunities, non stop, bringing the most experienced professionals from the industry to classes to work with us. The attention to detail within their craft of acting and teaching is nothing I’ve experienced at drama school before, and you won’t because it has been carefully crafted and put together by Lee and Jenny themselves with their experience and knowledge of the industry. And it is, what it says, a tribe. When you join the tribe you will forever have a group where you belong despite anything. Lockdown had no limit on what Actor Tribe could create, within weeks we were preparing to shoot a feature film on zoom. Most recently we have had numerous masterclasses with one of the most experienced and skilled directors in the industry, Steve Shill. Whereby we had the opportunity to be on a workshop set, being directed by him. Needless to say, Actor Tribe is pretty incredible. It’s a family of love and creativity. And not only has it been the support line throughout my life, but it has made being an actor professionally a possibility.” Agnes 20 yrs
“I have been attending actor tribe since I was 13 years old. From the years of training I have had from Lee & Jenny it has not only excelled me as an actor but also as a person. Our classes are like a family, the trust is like no other and what amazing friends I have made along the way. We have had the privilege to be provided with amazing workshops with outstanding industry professionals such as Paul Norton walker and Steve Shill. The in-depth technicality that goes into our lessons is like no other , and that is all down to the constant passion and commitment from our teachers , Lee & Jen. Without them we wouldn’t have the knowledge we have to conquer our dreams but also we wouldn’t have the endless support that they constantly provide each and everyone one of us.” Eleanor 22yrs
“I have been at actortribe since day one and I have had so many great oppertunites in the past 10 years, from auditions, special guests, being directed by Steve shill all the way to being in a film. Lee has helped and supported me so much, and I couldn’t be more greatful. I love the community and what actortribe represents, we are a tribe of loving people who have been through so much together. We support each other and we welcome anyone into our group. Unfortunately I am leaving actortribe to go travelling around the world, and I will miss everyone so much, and the oppertunties it brings. Massive thank you to Jenny, Lee and Nina for all their help over the years, I appreciate you all so much, THANK YOU ACTORTRIBE!” Becky 23 yrs.
“I’ve been a part of Actor Tribe since the early days, it has been great to see how it has evolved. Jenny and Lee are incredibly supportive people, extremely talented individuals and have provided a space within the local community to learn more about the arts. It is not only about learning regarding the acting profession but also learning about yourself.” Lou 50 yrs.
“Absolutely amazing things to experience week after week! Mind blowing acting techniques, fabulous guests and to round it all off it’s like having a second family. You won’t find a better place for aspiring actors than ActorTribe.” Cam 26 yrs.
“Actor Tribe is genuinely one of the best organisations I’ve ever come across. It brilliantly unfolds the secrets of the craft and equips you with all the necessary tools to transform you into a versatile actor. The way Lee structures the lessons with his relaxed, warm and humorous approach puts everybody at ease and makes it such an experience. His wealth of knowledge and vast experience in TV and film gives you a real insight into the industry. The content is spot on too and whilst it does draw on the great theories of acting (Stanislasky, Meisner etc) it’s never self indulgent or overly academic. It gives you every possible skill required for an actor’s toolbox, without you ever feeling like you’re at school. Because of their experience in the industry, the guest speakers that Lee and Jen get in are unparalleled. To be given notes by the director of The Sopranos and The Wire isn’t something that many acting classes can offer. The bond between the class members stretches way beyond Saturdays and there is a feeling of well- being and care amongst everybody. It genuinely is a tribe.” Mike 51 yrs
“I joined Actor Tribe just under a year ago and the opportunities I’ve experienced so far are amazing. Working with and being directed by esteemed TV director of the West Wing and The Sopranos; workshops with an Indie film producer and improvisation master; planning a film to be produced later this year as a group; i’ve made a short film with 2 of my classmates, had an SA role in a film and been sent audition opportunities. If you think that’s sounds amazing then you are right but the truly amazing part of Actor Tribe is Lee and Jenny. Their skill is in creating a safe, open, loving environment for us all to be completely free. Lee shares his knowledge in such a fun way but he really nourishes your talent and efforts, whatever level they may be, to make you shine. I am a 42 year old woman who had never studied acting/ drama or performed before yet this month I find myself finishing a short script and filming monologues for my showreel…as encouraged and taught by Actor Tribe. Seeing my “tribe” is the highlight of my week.” Sharon 42 yrs
“I’ve been a pupil at Actor Tribe for 8 years. They are quite simply The Original and The Best! Lee and Jenny are successful working Actors which brings a uniqueness to their way of teaching. It is current and exciting. We’ve had so many opportunities to work with many leading Actors and Directors who are at the top of their game. This is something most people could ever dream of in their lives. Lee and Jenny believe in all their pupils whether Acting is a hobby or a career choice we are all encouraged and nurtured to realise our full potential. It’s the best decision I ever made and I’m so grateful.“ Jayne 58 yrs
“I’ve attended two terms of Actor Tribe now and I’ve loved every second. It’s such a lovely and supportive group, full of positivity and growth. Every session has been important not just on acting technique but also the ins and outs of the industry and we’ve had great opportunities to work and talk with people who are consistently working in the industry. Most recently we’ve worked with Steve Shill who has directed The Sopranos, Dexter and plenty more so it’s been really informative watching him direct and work with us and demystifying the process of what happens on set. I’m so glad I luckily found Actor Tribe as I feel myself developing each week and not just in my acting.” Callum 23 yrs
“Following the loss of my wife, my children & I moved back to the area to be near family. My son started at the local primary, and that’s where we met Jennifer James, who was directing the children’s stage productions. Seeing how much my son loved drama & performance, Jennifer invited him to join Actor Tribe. This undoubtedly changed our lives for the better. After losing his mum, my son had become introverted and depressed, but after attending Jennifer’s classes he rediscovered his old confidence and flamboyance; he was back to his old self. With Jennifer’s tuition, my son’s acting ability has increased year on year, and he is now preparing to study drama at university, which will ultimately lead him to becoming a professional actor. And this is all thanks to Actor Tribe.
My own story is that having seen the joy Actor Tribe had brought my son, I joined the adult classes, and it’s the best decision I ever made. Lee Boardman’s acting classes have not only given me a thoroughly enjoyable, and usually hilarious, experience every week, the technical acting exercises we have learnt in class also helped me identify and deal with my own loss of confidence and self esteem. Like my classmates, who have become my friends, each week I look forward to the class because it gives me an outlet to express myself, but also to learn more about myself inwardly. For a man who had once struggled with grief and depression, Actor Tribe has brought me great happiness and great satisfaction.” Rob 50yrs
“Since Joining Actor Tribe, I have the had opportunity to gain industry level experience by being directed by Emmy award winning director Steve Shill. Alongside this, I was also part of the award winning dogma film “Little Boxes” directed by Rafeaello Degruttola. While being at Actor Tribe I have studied a broad curriculum which has expanded my knowledge and improved my acting technique. From Stanislavski’s “magic If” to Strasberg’s Animal study, the focus is always on extracting truth in Performance.
Through joining actor Tribe I have become part of a great community of people where I am able to express my creative ideas freely.” Rory 26 yrs
“I took an interest in acting later in life, I applied to Actortribe wondering if they would accept someone of my age, I needn’t have worried has I was most sincerely welcomed to the tribe. I’m now 7 years in and have learnt so much and gained performance confidence, the undoubted highlight being a part of the multi award winning Actortribe produced film Little Boxes. Actortribe is like one big family.” Barry 68 yrs
“I am fairly new to Actor Tribe, I joined in September 2022. I studied drama and have a brief background in theatre. Since my early thirties I have not really ventured back into theatre but the urge to perform or be involved with acting has never left me. I joined Actor Tribe, to start with, with the aim to have an outlet, just something for me each week where I could focus on ‘my’ interest. I could not have envisaged how impactful and important Actor Tribe would become. From the first session I was made to feel so welcome by everyone, Lee has created a warm safe environment which is vital for the depth of work that is carried out. Each week is different and challenging and because of Lee’s skilled coaching you come away feeling inspired and so proud of what you or another member has achieved. There is respect for one another that allows a truthfulness where we can laugh, cry, listen, talk, offer support but ultimately feel safe which then reflects in the work and performances that Lee produces with us. I honestly have never looked back since joining Actor Tribe, on a personal level I have met wonderful people, and that would have been more than enough, but, Lee and Jenny are truly encouraging of everyone’s talents and for the first time in a very long time I am inspired and have begun writing again and believing in myself. No acting school, course, or college has ever done that. It might be that now is the right time but whatever it is I’m going to run with it. The opportunities put our way by Jenny and Lee are totally amazing, huge names in the directing and acting world that impart their knowledge and experience, just for us, is humbling. For anyone thinking about it, I would say, do it, do it, do it, you won’t regret it. I didn’t realise but maybe I had been searching all this time and now, finally, I really have found my ‘tribe’. “Caroline 48 yrs
“I joined actor tribe in Jan 2023 and I’m now in my 2nd term. It has been a fantastic journey so far…Actor Tribe really is a family where you feel valued and really encouraged to follow your passion for acting by the teachers and fellow students. The knowledge and wisdom I have received from Lee (our super talented working actor teacher) is so valuable and transformative, he gives you confidence and great support to really hone the skill of acting in a safe caring space where there are no wrongs. As well as being taught by this great teacher we also get amazing workshops with other working actors and directors. I recently did my first filmed piece which was written and directed by award winning director Steve Shill who has directed Tv series the likes of Sopranos and Dexter! It was so much fun and we all learnt so much about the creative and technical side of filming. It’s absolutely the best decision I made to join and I really look forward to my weekly Saturday session! I would highly recommend Actor Tribe to anyone who has always wanted to act and know it’s never too late to follow your dreams! “Libby 44 yrs
“I have been a student for 9 years and Actor Tribe has been truly amazing. Our teachers are not only fantastic but they genuinely care about every student. They provide us with a nurturing environment with no judgement, where we can learn and our class is like family. We have received opportunities and have doors opened that would never happen anywhere else. Not only do they provide us with the skills and confidence to move forward with our own acting journey, they provide us with a wealth of experience. Things from master classes and Q&As with industry actors and and directors (who provide such valuable insight) to making our own film during lockdown. My time here has also helped me so much in day to day life. So glad I joined the Tribe. I can’t thank Lee and Jenny enough for everything they do and provide us. As well as the love they shows us in and out of class.” Lizzie, 34 yrs
“I began my journey into the world of acting and performing mainly out of curiosity in 2015. I discovered an incredible place that is committed to bringing out the best in people as aspiring actors and performers of all ages. Everyone at Actor Tribe has the chance to grow and learn from professional actors who have many years of experience in Theatre, T.V. and film. Over the years we have been treated to guest speakers from film directors to seasoned performers many of whom are household names and are highly respected in the business. Even lockdown couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm for learning and pushing what is possible when Actor Tribe stepped up to the challenge. Throughout the pandemic we continued to meet online for classes which resulted in the creation of a film ‘Little Boxes’ which went on to win awards at film festivals all over the world.
Both Lee and Jennifer are rightly proud of Actor Tribe as the best acting school in the north of England. Very few acting schools anywhere can offer the breadth of experience and experiences that they offer. If you have the urge to act and perform but are unsure where to go or how to go about it then look no further. You’ll receive a warm welcome at Actor Tribe and maybe an actual hug.” Ian (older than I look)
“I joined Actor Tribe in 2019 and have enjoyed an incredible acting journey throughout the last 4 years. My acting has developed year on year with the training and guidance of Lee Boardman and Nina De Mitri in the adult class. The art of bringing truth to the performance is one of the many areas in which my acting has improved, thanks to AT! Actor Tribe is not only a place for learning but also a supportive space with friendships formed between people from all walks of life and ages. I am 42 and have always felt welcomed, valued and nurtured by my fellow tribe. During my time at AT, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many industry professionals, both Actors and Directors. Receiving advice from, and being able to engage with, such a high caliber of professional offers an insightful view into the industry and how to ‘make it happen!’ Two of the many highlights during my time with AT would be: being directed by the great Steve Shill in class! And being in ‘Little Boxes’ the award winning feature film directed by the wonderful Raffaello Degruttola! Actor Tribe is a highlight of the week, a chance to meet with like minded people all in pursuit of developing themselves and readily enjoying the process! A joyful place to be!” Cheryl 42 yrs.
“Actor tribe is not only a group providing first class actor training (which it absolutely is) but a family. A family of loving, supportive actors led by gifted teachers providing a safe space to encourage talent. You’re expected to work hard and be prepared but the nurturing atmosphere provided by Lee and be Jenny means that it’s totally okay to make mistakes and be yourself. Joining actor tribe has been one of the best things I’ve done and has allowed me to meet some of the very best people you could ever wish to share a part of your life with.” Jess 24 yrs
“My son and I have been attending Actor Tribe for six years. The support and guidance we have received from Jenny and Lee has been outstanding. Oscar, my son, has blossomed into a confident young man. Actor Tribe has been a fundamental part of his development. The skills and training he has gained from Jenny has helped him not only in acting but in life. He is able to hold a conversation with adults confidently and respectfully. For my part, attending the weekly classes has been life changing. Actor Tribe is unique. I have not experienced anything close to it before. Lee & Jenny provide a an environment where we can explore, learn and develop our craft in a safe place. Thanks to the support and guidance I have received from Jenny, Lee and the wonderful masterclass guests I have enjoyed success professionally in film, TV and theatre. I have no doubt that I would not have achieved this without their knowledge of the industry and their support. Actor Tribe is not just an acting class, it is a family where we all love, support and encourage each other.” John 51 yrs.
“Choosing to join Actor Tribe still remains as one of the most paramount and pivotal decisions of my life. Thinking back to almost 6 years ago (2017) when I had my first session, walking in feeling a shell of an individual, I had never felt more supported, encouraged and loved. Not only have I been blessed with endless opportunities: gaining insight and advice from top casting directors, agents and actors, amongst masterclasses; to being a part of an award winning feature film (all such rare and invaluable experiences), Actor Tribe has been at the heart of my self evolution. Incomparable to any other ways of teachings, Lee and Jenny marvellously illuminate the different realms of acting, where you are able to explore and challenge yourself in a nonjudgmental environment. My understanding of acting has truly been revolutionised, I cannot recommend it enough. I forever will be grateful to Lee Jenny and Nina for all their love and kindness, alongside the most incredible people that make up Actor Tribe.”
Molly 19 yrs.
“Actor Tribe is so much more than a drama class. I am in my fifties and have wanted to act since I was at primary school. But I never had the confidence to give it a try before – until I discovered Actor Tribe. A place where I felt welcome right from the start. It soon became apparent that here was a safe place to explore my ambition and, gradually, I began to realise that my dream actually could be attainable. Lee has tremendous perception and uses his considerable skills and experience to coax the best out of us all. I have met some wonderful people, my fellow students, who have become dear friends. I will be forever grateful for the incredible opportunities and experiences I have had at Actor Tribe. I can hardly believe that I have appeared in a film directed by independent film director, Raff Degruttola, and also attended TV acting masterclasses taught by an Emmy award winning director, as well as being tutored by highly respected professional actors and writers. Thank you Lee, Jenny and Nina for your care, professionalism and continuing faith in your students. Long may it endure.” Jacqui. 50’s.
“If you want to be an actor, or nurtured for in a career in the arts then this is a place for you. If you are interested in learning more about yourself and developing confidence then this is the place for you. If you want to find a place to play and be be accepted then Actor Tribe is definitely the place for you. From the moment I became part of Actor Tribe in my late 20s I have never looked back. I am now approaching my late 30s and my career since joining has slightly changed track from acting to now (at the moment) producing but the constant well rounded knowledge, practical exercises, exploration and life skills Actor Tribe has given me has never ceased and their relevance to every aspect of the industry has developed my career and fed my soul each week. Their practices enable me each week to become flexible in how to adapt my skills and for me to take ownership of carving out what my own place in the industry is and empower me for what it can be next. While my age might have changed what has never changed is the relevance, support and genuine care Actor Tribe emits to all, getting to know each student of varying age, background and ambition in appreciating their individual needs.Being part of Actor Tribe does not put you into a box or mould you into a specific product, it gives you the tools and amazing opportunities to harness your uniqueness & the professional acumen to navigate your own place with the industry and/or life! The space carefully curated in sessions allows you try without the worry of failure, encourages you to discover with trust in the process rather than pressure of the product and understand how to access what you need in a given situation. I love the structure of the acting classes, the mix of contemporary & traditional approaches but more than that the in depth knowledge the tutors share as to why and where techniques came from, how they developed (or became opposed) and the real time application of how they are used in the industry today unlocking the mind and freeing inspiration for classes that never cease to leave me uplifted and full of possibilities.
Not only does this come from the founders, Lee and Jenny who are at the top of their game and with you every step of the way but various actors, directors and writers regularly coming in to guide us from their perspective.In the adult classes I still get to keep myself fresh as an actor but Actor Tribe also develops itself to constantly give students the most up to date practices in an ever evolving world. We have the chance to observe, try, practice and develop other skills/interests such as directing, producing, writing and script in hand R&D.All the tutors, guests & especially Lee and Jenny have a hugely special gift for connecting with people and that person centred approach is what makes their passion and talent into something that surpasses a school, it becomes a network of growth for people, the industry and roots into it making it accessible to all and not just the few with the highest quality and the freshest opportunities.In the last year we have been in a multi award festival winning film, directed by international major tv network directors and read for the most current writers in British tv of today as well as masterclasses with top stage actors and regional theatre producers.I have been in the industry a while now and to my knowledge there is no better way of moving forward in your career (and life) anywhere in this country than being part of Actor Tribe!” Sam 36 yrs.
“My daughter joined Actor Tribe because she enjoyed drama but AT is about so much more than that! It’s a place where confidence blossoms, where every voice is heard, where kindness is celebrated and no one is judged. Every child is supported, understood, cared for and every session is inspiring, thought-provoking and loads of fun. The guest speakers from the industry are amazing and Jenny is the dynamic, energetic and empathetic role model you want in your child’s life. Two years in it has been, and is, utterly wonderful for my daughter.” Parental review of 14 Yr old girl.
“Both my children attended Actor Tribe for about three years and loved every minute of it. I would describe the sessions as a bubble of pure joy and happiness. There is no room for anything but love and appreciation in Jenny’s class and she absolutely turbo charges their confidence. Every child I know who has attended the classes has grown so much from it. The children are so supportive of each other and the work they produce is wonderful. Lee shares his wealth of experience with the children too, in a down to earth, kind way. They absolutely get the best out of your child and I cannot thank them enough.” Parental review of 13 Yr old boy and 15 Yr old girl.
“As a parent, I am amazed at the immense growth and development I have witnessed during my daughters time with Actor Tribe.
From the very first session, it was evident that my daughter was in excellent hands. Jenny and the other teachers professionalism, passion, and commitment to nurturing young talent are unparalleled. They created a warm, inclusive environment where every child feels safe to express themselves creatively. Actor Tribe strikes a perfect balance between structured lessons and allowing room for personal expression, encouraging the children to explore their individual artistic strengths.
As a parent, I highly recommend Actor Tribe to any family seeking a nurturing and enriching environment for their child’s artistic growth. This is a remarkable opportunity for children to explore their creativity, develop their acting talents, and gain invaluable life skills straight from the frontline and those working within the industry. I am grateful for the transformative experience it has provided for my child, and I look forward to their continued journey into the world of acting. If I could give more than a 5 star review I would! “ Parental review 10 Yr old girl.
“My daughter Evie has been attending Actor Tribe for 14 months and she absolutely loves it. From the very first session, Evie felt welcomed and very much part of the Actor Tribe family.
Actor Tribe as had such a positive impact on Evie. It has given her so much confidence and the sessions really do fill her with joy. She looks forward to every session and is constantly making new friends each week. She always leaves the sessions with the biggest smile. As a parent, it is a joy for Evie to attend a club which encourages her to grow and be the best she can be at anything. We know there will be some amazing opportunities for Evie at Actor Tribe and we look forward to watching her progress within this brilliant club. Evie wouldn’t be without Actor Tribe now. The best club she has ever joined.” Parent of an 11 Yr old girl.
“My son, Will, is 16 and has been going to Actor Tribe since he was 14. I knew he enjoyed performing and being a drama teacher myself, I knew he had a talent for it. However, I also knew it was vital I find the right environment for him. I had looked around at many acting classes and for one reason or another they were not the right fit for Will, however, when I came across Actor Tribe I knew that if I could just get him there for one session, he wouldn’t look back. And that is exactly what happened. I cannot write enough positive things about Jenny and what she has created for these young people, bearing in mind, 14 is a tricky age to start anything new but Jenny is so incredibly nurturing and warm, children of all ages feel instantly safe and happy. Will has flourished at Actor Tribe, it is the highlight of his week, he has grown in confidence, and is inspired and enthused after every class. He adores Jenny and what she achieves with them each week. The work carried out truly goes beyond Actor Tribe, as a mum I can see how it has helped Will with interviews for colleges and jobs, I can see he deals with social situations with confidence and maturity. Jenny’s teaching is not only industry based for acting etc but it is life skills too. As a mum, it is the best decision I’ve ever made for my child. On another level, the opportunities put forward by Jenny and Lee are phenomenal, industry directors, writers and actors offer their knowledge and experience to these young people giving them an insight to the profession they would not get anywhere else. It has definitely inspired Will, who now wants to be an actor. Who knows, with Actor Tribe that dream really can come true.” Parental review of a 16 Yr old boy.
“Jenny and I met by chance in the salon I worked in. After a brief chat about my daughters dreams, aspirations and love of acting but not feeling settled in her current class, Jenny invited Beth to join Actor tribe. 2 years have past and WOW! Beth’s confidence, skills and love for acting has grown massively, with opportunities and experiences beyond her dreams falling at her feet – Beth has been given a 1 in 100 place at the prestigious Lipa 6th form college, which we strongly believe was achieved with everything Actor Tribe has given and done for Beth. Beth has made life long, strong friends within the group and I’m so grateful to Jenny for everything that she and the Tribe have done. Bethy is looking forward to moving up to Lee in September but is so sad to be leaving Jennys group. Thank you to all at Actor Tribe you’ve got a life long student in Beth and a life long grateful Mum in me! “ Parental review of 15 Yr old girl.
“Since Charlie has joined ActorTribe, he has not only thrived at his acting, but also as a person. The family environment created by the heads of the family, Jenny and Lee, not only makes it an amazing place to be, but allows my son to be at his most comfortable in his own skin. For that alone, Actor Tribe deserves all the accolades and praise that they richly deserve. The life skills that my son has received are a true reflection of the wonderful atmosphere that is generated and that has allowed him to forge friendships and fully enjoy the highlight of his week. Long may ActorTribe continue.” Parent of a 15 Yr old boy.
“My eldest child first started attending Actor Tribe seven years ago. She went because she had a love of acting. Soon after my youngest child decided she wanted to join Actor Tribe after seeing how much her sister enjoyed herself. Jenny and Lee have offered my children wonderful opportunities to meet directors, writers and audition for BBC and Netflix shows. They have developed as confident, talented actors through the Actor Tribe teams guidance. But more importantly Actor Tribe has offered them the safest place to be themselves. Jenny has nurtured them both not only as actors but also as young women. When times might have been tough with friendships or school Actor Tribe has offered a safe haven where everyone is celebrated for their individuality.” Parental review of a 16 Yr old girl and 14 Yr old girl.
“My son (15, soon to be 16) LOVES attending Actor Tribe. From day one, Jenny and the team have made him feel welcome and encouraged his love of acting. Whether the classes draw upon a serious, thought—provoking topic or something lighthearted, the topics are tackled with professionalism, care and enthusiasm. Opportunities for youngsters to get in front of industry professionals is not only incredibly exciting for them, but also an invaluable opportunity for those wishing to persue a career in acting. Week in, week out, my son enjoys his Actor Tribe journey and I would highly recommend Actor Tribe.” Parent of a 15 Yr old boy.
“My daughter started at ActorTribe five years ago when she was still at primary school and initially joined to build her self- confidence and ‘have a go at acting’. In the nurturing environment created and fostered by Jenny, Lee and the team she soon came out of her shell and put herself forward for a role in the school summer production. Since then she’s continued to grow in confidence and each week comes out of the session with a beaming smile and full of conversation about what they’ve explored and achieved. Whether its something that’s challenged my daughter, a role play or drama exercise, Jenny always seems to have an incredible nack of getting the best out of her. I would recommend ActorTribe to any child or adult interested in drama lessons whether it be for fun or a love of acting, but also for those who want to challenge themselves, try something different and learn new skills in a supportive and inclusive setting.” Parental review
“Our daughter Georgie has been at actor tribe for 2 years and the change in her has been incredible. Her confidence has grown hugely and she is able to chat with her peers and hold fantastic conversations with adults now and I believe actor tribe plays a huge part in this change. She loves going every Saturday morning. She is a member of a football team but refuses to play matches on Saturday mornings as she won’t miss actor tribe! Jenny is incredible and has such warmth and enthusiasm for the children. I wish I had had a drama teacher like that growing up. We love it.” Parental review of 9 Yr old girl.
“My daughter has been attending ActorTribe since she was 9 years old. She is now 14. She enjoys attending ActorTribe for the acting lessons, the information she learns, the students she has met along the way, the friendly, caring, non-judgemental atmosphere and in particular the leadership, kindness and love shown by Jenny and Lee. I’ve never regretted for one moment letting my daughter join ActorTribe and would recommend them to anyone, adult or child. My daughter’s confidence and belief in herself has grown immensely. She says that even if she doesn’t end up acting, Jenny and all at ActorTribe are her safe space and that it helps her mental health. Thank you ActorTribe.” Parent of a 15 Yr old girl.
“My daughter joined Actor Tribe just over 6 months ago. She didn’t know anybody who went but was keen to join a drama class. She’s never been one to join clubs or group activities and sometimes doesn’t throw herself into new things. I was worried she might feel like an outsider. I could not have been more wrong. She absolutely loves it. The other children have been so warm and welcoming and Jenny. What can I say. It’s rare in life to meet someone who is so positive and encouraging to the children. I have never met anyone who can build a child’s confidence like she can. We went to watch a show and her feedback to the children was so lovely. She complimented every one of them and it was genuine and you could see the beaming smiles on the children’s faces. My husband and I came away and both said that Jenny is what every teacher should strive to be, because she really does give every child so much confidence, she builds them up. I cannot recommend this drama school enough, whether you have a brilliant budding actor bursting with confidence or a shy child who is working on their self-esteem. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you Jenny and team for providing such an amazing class to the children.” Parental review of a 15 Yr old girl.
“My son, age 13, has been at Actor Tribe for a year now and he couldn’t be happier! It is such a safe, warm, welcoming space for him to be with his new friends. He has grown in confidence and I feel that even if acting isn’t a career path for everyone, the skills gained at Actor Tribe are invaluable.” Parental review 13 Yr old boy.
“My daughter absolutely loves going to Actor Tribe. It’s her safe space and somewhere where she has been able to make new friends, build her own confidence and have a huge amount of fun! Jenny made her feel so welcome from the very first interaction and has been so supportive of her. It is such a caring and nurturing environment and helps children develop social skills as well as learning about the craft of acting. I would not hesitate to recommend. Huge thanks to Jenny and Lee for creating this amazing environment and being such caring supporters of our kids.“ Parental review of 12 Yr old.
“We’ve noticed such a big difference in our son since he started actor tribe in his confidence and his happiness. Jenny is really nurturing and genuinely cares about the kids and their families and that means so much. He really enjoys every lesson and comes out beaming. It’s by far the best drama group he has ever been to. The lessons are really varied and have great guests, including casting directors. We’re so glad that he has found actor tribe and highly recommended it.
Thanks so much for everything!” Parental review of 14 Yr old boy.
“10 years!!! That’s such a great milestone, and just think how many lives you’ve changed in that time – all for the positive – and it’s not just that you help children at their very most difficult time of trying to navigate that tricky path from childhood to adulthood – but in doing so you give a massive dose of support and relief to all their long suffering parents who are struggling to help guide them and whose voices are the very last ones their children want to hear!!
