"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!"

"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."

"It's strange that you come to drama school to play other characters when really you learn a lot about yourself. Only by understanding who you are can you begin to understand others. DSL has prepared me for the competitive industry that awaits me (before drama school I knew nothing about it). I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at DSL and have made long lasting friends."

"This has without a doubt been the most exciting and fulfilling year of my life to date. The amount I have learned about the industry as a whole is incredible - not only in regards to acting and technique, but also the practicalities of being a working actor. Because of the wonderful teaching staff and ethos adopted by the school, I am graduating feeling fully equipped."

"An amazing journey. I challenged myself in so many ways. I always felt supported. I now feel confident in my skills and think as a professional actor. I felt like I have been part of a family rather than just a school."
