Don Rae 

Hello and welcome to our website! My name is Don Rae and I am the founder and Creative Director of D.R.A.M.A. I studied Musical Theatre at the BRIT school and graduated from Roehampton University with a BA Hons. degree in Drama and Theatre Studies.

As an experienced performer and performing arts teacher I recognised the need for children to learn through dance and drama. I have witnessed the many great benefits of the arts along with the inspiring achievements from the children which is so rewarding.


Grace Lewis

Grace trained in musical theatre at the CAP 21 Studios in New York and in screen acting at the International School of Screen Acting at the 3 Mills Studios in London. Grace has been dancing since the age of four and enjoys dancing and teaching ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap and modern styles. She recently returned from Beijing where she was teaching dance and musical theatre to children from 4 to 16 years! Favourite dance move... the worm!

Lucy Bell

Hello, I'm Lucy! I've been in London for four years and have trained in professional Musical Theatre at the Italia Conti Academy in London and am now starting my career as an actress! I've been teaching for over four years doing dance, drama and singing and even had to dress up as a gorilla to entertain! I have just recently joined the Don Rae Academy making my debut first job for them as Queen Elsa! I absolutely love teaching and love being able to share my passion and knowledge in performing arts with the kids! 

Amy Allen

Amy is an Actor and workshop leader & has taught drama & acting related classes across the U.K. for over 15 years (eek!) students ages range from 5 months to 90yrs.

Acting credits include for BBC films, and various theatres across the U.K. & Germany, and when not on stage or screen Amy enjoys sharing her creative passion with others in workshops and classes. 

Another passion is travelling and Amy is a keen advanced scuba diver; the world under the sea makes for a very dramatic scene! 2 life goals would be to perform at Shakespeare's Globe theatre & dive in the Galápagos Islands.
