Speech and Drama and Elocution lessons for all ages
ABOUT OUR DIRECTOR
Mary Whelan Fox School of Elocution, Speech and Drama opened in April 2006 due to a fast-growing demand from adults and parents for quality teaching and coaching in voice and elocution.
Active participation is what we strive for in our Speech and Drama classes and coaching sessions.
