About The Independent Theatre Workshop
The Independent Theatre Workshop was started by Gillian Oman in 1993 and now has schools in Ranelagh, Clonskeagh and Drumcondra offering classes in all aspects of the performing arts. We run weekly classes during term time and intensive courses during the school holidays catering for boys and girls of all ages and abilities.
Our primary objective is to build confidence and creativity and to provide a social forum for our students to make friends for life.
Our younger students build vocabulary, imagination, confidence and co-ordination in Creative Drama and lively Dance classes, which cover many styles from pop to musical theatre. Our older students benefit from more advanced classes, one to one advice and training, preparing them for college entrance and professional work.
We cover a wide range of drama, singing and dance styles and offer many performance opportunities. We hope to encourage a love of the arts in all its forms.
Not all of our teaching is confined to the classroom – we have regular outings to the theatre both in Dublin and further afield with theatre trips to London and New York being a regular feature in our calendar! Our teachers are all experienced and motivated and are chosen for their ability to bring out the best in our students with a real interest in each and every child’s development.
We also invite industry professionals to run specialist workshops in ITW and have had many household names and WestEnd stars and Broadway stars who have been in to work with our students over the years.
Many of our students perform regularly in a wide range of theatre, film and television roles –
