LAUREN CESENA

Lucy began teaching drama at the age of 19 following a childhood full of drama and theatre. Training at London drama school, ALRA, Lucy gained a three year acting diploma and worked professionally for twelve years. 

Her love of children's theatre lead her to take up teaching again, initially alongside her acting career but after a year she began teaching full time after going back to college to gain a degree in Performing Arts at Arts Ed in London and taking her teaching qualification with LAMDA.

Lucy now runs The Academy of Speech and Drama full time, teaching speech and drama in schools throughout London, Essex and Hertfordshire and writing and directing plays for the youth groups.
