Kids up front

    Jennifer Monk is an actor based in Flemington with credits in film, theatre and television. She has been using her performing arts experience to teach drama to youth for the last thirteen years in Australia and abroad.

    Jennifer and Kids Up Front Drama (KUF) give kids confidence! Their fun and dynamic drama classes really work to improve the communication skills of all participants, and they also promote teamwork and help to build self esteem.

    “The classes allow students to join in at their own pace and level. It’s a great way for youth to open up their imaginations and trust that their ideas are valued and interesting,” says Jennifer.

    KUF was founded in 1999 by Karin Clifford to provide a creative and fun after-school drama program designed to develop children’s confidence and self-esteem. NEW classes will start in Yarraville in Term 3 on Wednesdays.
