Participants Experiences

  • Being a relative newcomer to Dorchester, Connect has been a wonderful way to get to know a multifarious group of people as we flourish in our enjoyment and participation in drama activities…The sense of belonging and community that I experience as a member is second to none and feel truly incorporated into the Dorchester Arts scene.  
  • I like it – its fun and I enjoy other people’s company more. My confidence has improved and I have learnt a lot about drama. 
  • It has given me a positive outlook and I use the drama practices to help me cope with everyday stress. 
  • Since joining Connect I feel I have connected with like minded people who come from different walks of life and ages. The youngest is 19 and the eldest 60. I feel I belong… and feel more positive and confident. I am allowed to be myself which allows me to relax and bring forward drama skills that I never knew I had. 
  • I have found a niche in the performing arts and may it grow and grow…I developed like a seed that flourishes through Connect.
  • Connect literally completed my happiness with my life 
  • Thanks to Connect I am no longer afraid to step outside my comfort zone. I have learnt invaluable things and I am now more confident as a result
