Simply Theatre Academy’s approach to the Performing Arts is perhaps a little different than other performing arts providers – partly because of the background of our founder, and partly because of our unique situation as a provider of Performing Arts classes to the children of Switzerland in English. Here's 6 reasons why we think we're different to other Performing Arts providers:
Topics: Performing Arts, Productions, Friendships, Performance Opportunities, Career guidance, Drama, Drama Classes, Performing Arts Classes, Acting, Drama School, Community, Montessori, Professional, English-Speaking, Switzerland, Theatre, Children
A British Chamber of Commerce Workforce Survey conducted in 2014 concluded that 88% of school leavers are not prepared for work. 57% of these employers believed that this was due to a lack of soft skills, such as communication, team working and resilience.
We’re always incredibly sad to see our students fly the Simply Theatre nest – but at the same time incredibly proud and excited for them! Huge congratulations and good luck to both Paula at Simply Theatre Zurich and Floris at Simply Theatre Geneva who have secured places at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Paula recently played Sergeant Samways in Danny The Champion Of The World in Zurich and Floris played the title role in Shrek at The Casino Theatre Geneva.

Their child loves to perform at home, to family and friends, and a performing arts course is a great outlet to express and develop this passion.
