ABOUT THE PRINCIPAL

KERRY CHAPMAN BACHELOR OF ARTS HONOURS DEGREE - DRAMA
Kerry qualified Cum Laude with her BA Honours Degree in Drama and Performance Studies, in 2006. During the course of her honors year she taught part-time for the Helen O’Grady Academy in Durban and continued to do so up to the end of 2007. In 2008 Kerry launched the Helen O’Grady Drama Academy Jo’burg North West branch. It has been running for the past 9 years and has become one of the largest drama schools in Johannesburg.
Kerry has a passion for performance. Her biggest strength lies in the classroom where she gets to interact, encourage and develop individuals from various backgrounds. She has witnessed the amazing benefits of the Helen O’Grady System and thus completely believes in The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy.
MEGAN FLEMING
TEACHER
Megan's history with Helen O’ Grady dates back to 2008. She was a student at the academy for four years and fell in love with the programme. Megan was constantly consumed by dance and drama throughout high school and particularly flourished at Helen O’ Grady. She went on to study a BA Psychology at Stellenbosch and hopes to complete her degree in Drama Therapy at Wits University next year. Megan has been teaching for the Academy since January 2015. She has had thorough training in the Helen O'Grady technique as well as hands on experience with the Kindy programme. Megan is passionate about the Helen O'Grady system and believes that it embraces all the strengths of the children and encourages them to build their self confidence on a weekly basis.
MEGAN REEKS
TEACHER AND DEPUTY PRINCIPAL
At a very young age, Megan was bitten by the performing bug, when she attended her first ballet class. After years of different dance classes & dancing styles; high school plays; a BA Honours degree in Dramatic Arts from Wits University & several years of working as a professional actress; Megan's passion & love for the Performing Arts is as strong as ever! While working as an actress, Megan started teaching drama. In 2011, she joined the Helen 'O Grady Academy and has shared her passion for acting & performance with the Academy's students ever since; while encouraging each child to believe in themselves & develop their self-confidence!
DENé VORSTER
TEACHER
Dené lives and breathes the arts. In primary and high school she performed in various musicals and fell in love with singing, dancing, and acting. At the age of 16 she was a top 7 South African Idols finalist, and it was this experience that reminded her of the power of the arts. Dené then continued to study BA Drama and Theatre studies with Psychology at Stellenbosch University, and finished with her degree in 2016. Teaching young talent has always been one of her biggest passions. She believes the arts have an enormous impact on the development and functioning of children especially. It is because of this that she started teaching at the academy in 2017 while working as an actor and music artist. The academy’s work has had a big impact on her as a performer, and she is excited to share it with as many students as possible!
