Where can I start, I've been a part of Attitude for 8 years now and have met so many people on my journey. Some have gone some have stayed but the dedication and laughter has always stayed the same. I cannot thank Kimberley enough for giving me so many opportunities and raising my confidence if it wasn’t for her and this drama group, I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to fully pursue acting and performing as a career. Attitude will always have a huge part of my life and my heart.

TESTIMONIALS



Attitude Performing Arts made me into the person I am today! As a child I was quite shy and constantly anxious about singing/acting. With Kim’s help, I massively came out of my shell, from performing many shows to family and friends and to finally sing/act in front of a crowd of people I did not know. I also made some of the most amazing memories and friends for life, and I will cherish those moments forever!

Attitude Performing Arts was one of the best things I done. It built up my confidence so much and allowed me to express myself in areas I didn’t think I could. Drama wasn’t something I was drawn to but this experience has allowed me to open up and be myself. I had some great times with some great people and would highly recommend it to anyone. Kimberley Preston was such a great tutor and such a great friend, always there when I needed something and it’s such a great thing that she’s doing this to influence other people just like myself!!

I always look forward to my Saturdays at Attitude, it is a place where I not only have a lot of fun, but I also learn about important and relevant issues. Initially it was not something I could imagine myself doing but I gave it a go and don’t regret it at all! Going to drama, gives me a place to express my creativity around a special and tight knit group which is very important to me in the midst of revision for exams and everyone’s busy lives. I have also had the opportunity to lead sessions and choreograph which made me feel valued within the group and that Kimberley believed in my ability and potential to take performing arts further. It also allowed me to develop life skills such as improving my confidence and communication skills which have already proved so useful. The room is always filled with smiles and laughter and is a comfortable, safe and welcoming environment. Drama will always have a special place in my heart and Kimberley is so dedicated and puts her heart and soul into the sessions and shows. She inspires me and so many others so much.

Attitude Performing Arts has been a huge part of my life and offered me experiences and opportunities I never would have got. I have been a part of Attitude for 6 years, I never enjoyed drama activities previous to joining APAS but Kimberley always encouraged me and gave me time, until I felt comfortable enough to join in. I am extremely happy at how much I have progressed, as last year I got the main part in the Now Festival, raising awareness of mental health in the Epstein theatre. A few years ago I would never have been able to speak in front of a small group, never mind perform in front of a large audience. My level of confidence has dramatically improved and I am very proud to be apart of this amazing family; in which I have made lots of intergenerational friendships- some who are over 10 years younger than me. Drama is a really happy and positive place to be, we learn about serious topics but have a lot of fun doing so. Kimberley also asked me to be her senior volunteer, when I was 18, I now have the opportunity to lead fun sessions for the young people. I love that she believes in me, it inspires me so much. I am so passionate about working with this group as we are the best team, and have made amazing memories that I’ll treasure forever. I have come so far and developed as a person due to Kimberley and her belief in me, and I will be forever grateful for everything she does for me. She is amazing, a brilliant role model for teenagers like me. Meeting Kimberley and joining Attitude has changed my life.

I love attending Attitude Performing Arts School, it has helped me in so many different ways to become the person who I am today. It has offered me so much support that school and friends outside of drama haven’t particularly offered me, it has taught me not to care about what people think of me, as a result I have grown in confidence. I loved performing when I was a younger but I could’ve never imagined the opportunities that I was offered because Kimberley gave up her Saturdays so freely and selflessly and I am so thankful for everything she has done for us. Attitude has given me so many skills that everybody would benefit from learning, such as boosting my confidence and learning how to be serious and compassionate in sensitive situations. Therefore, I would recommend attitude performing arts school to anyone because it will help you in every aspect of your life to overcome challenges.
