Testimonials
Hi Donna, I just want to share with you, that before Drama classes at DSA, my Rachel was so shy she could not speak at morning talk. However, Just last week, only after 4 drama classes, she stood up at assembly and was so confident, she blew everyone away. We are delighted with all you do for our kids. Thank you."
