DSL was life-changing, and I write that fully aware of how horribly cliched it is, but it's true. A well-developed course, supportive staff and real professional experience have made it a delight to train here. Tom Vanson 2015 Graduate

 

2015 Graduates

"I really want to thank all the staff for their support, encouragement and patience. I am so glad that DSL works to build your confidence as a unique performer rather than trying to mold you into a particular ideal. I found the small, intimate nature of the school and its vocational training very nurturing and feel the year has been the stepping stone I needed to help me set out on my career as a performer. Many thanks!"

"I truly had the time of my life at DSL. There's something very special about the place and although I'm sad to have left I've graduated excited about all the future has to offer. The training has equipped me with all the tools of the trade and more and it's a testament to you and the teaching staff for creating an environment where we weren't afraid to try, fail and get back up again.

2013 Graduates

"I've had an incredible year. I've learnt from some of the best and I'm confident that everything I've been taught will contribute to future work. I've felt supported throughout the year particularly by Gill, who from the beginning has gone above and beyond to ensure that I've been alright. The course is challenging, but it's supposed to be and that's part of the fun. I've already recommended it to a number of friends (three of whom are coming next year) and I will continue to do so- giving a little back to DSL after everything it's given me. Clichéd maybe, but true!"
