“I think it should be compulsory that everyone in every line of work should study drama, and studying Drama in the Kinsale College is the icing on the cake. Ian and Belinda have pretty much laid the groundwork for my love and enthusiasm for life and nursed a passion for performance that has helped me in EVERY endeavour. Since completion of the course I’ve had the privilege to work with great directors in all the mediums of theatre, television and film. The craft of playing has brought me from the windy willows of Macroom to the plasticy places of Hollywood. Embarking on the course with Ian and Belinda with the underlying goal; “to soak up the craft like a fun sponge”, will not only guarantee a very interesting rest of life... but also guarantee the fusing of new friendships that will stay with you forever.”
“I decided to do the drama course with Belinda Wild because I wanted to add to my skills as a circus performer by learning the craft of acting. My two years on the drama course were spent in a whirlwind of creativity and exploration that were far beyond my expectations! I am now based in Italy and working as a professional performer, creating my own work which is a mixture of circus and theatre and putting all of the invaluable skills I learned to use on a daily basis.”
