Lucy Calvert

Lucy Calvert

Dance and Drama Teacher

Originally from the north of England, Lucy Calvert's love for the arts began when she was very young, having first worked professionally at the age of just 8.

She moved to London to attend a top theatre school, where she was Head Girl. Lucy graduated with Trinity College National Diplomas in Musical Theatre and Drama, Gold Medal LAMDA and ISTD dance teaching qualifications. Since graduating, Lucy has worked professionally in theatre, both West End and Regional. She has worked in TV and film for BBC, ITV, Sky and many independent film companies. A personal career highlight was being asked to perform at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony.

After backpacking around the world on her own, Lucy began teaching with The Princes Trust in London, running their successful programmes and projects as well as continuing to perform. She has taught at Stagecoach and has choreographed and directed many plays and musicals. She has also successfully coached students for West End auditions and professional theatre schools. In addition to this, she spent a year working for a charity in London; teaching English Language to autistic children and young people who have been excluded from mainstream education due to behavioural issues.  From this she saw first-hand the importance and impact the creative arts can have on a child’s education. She continued her studies in this field and went on to gain a First Class Honours Degree in Professional Practice of the Arts with a focus on Dramatherapy within Drama Education.

Prior to joining NAIS Dublin, Lucy spent 3 years teaching in Singapore. She delivered Speech and Drama, Dance and Musical Theatre programmes at most of the international schools there, which has given her a wide range of experience in teaching children of many different nationalities and cultures. She has also had a strong role to play in the children’s casting of international touring productions that come to Singapore.

Lucy is passionate about creating a safe space for children to explore their emotions and creativity through dance and drama. She believes the most important aspect of her job is to build a child’s self confidence so that they can go out into the world striving to be the best version of themselves and have the confidence to make a difference and reach their full potential in whatever field they decide to work in.

Lucy is delighted to be a part of the NAIS Dublin team. With a strong connection to the professional arts industry she aims to be able to give her students the very best opportunities.
