The Speech & Drama Teachers’

Association of Victoria

The SDTAV is a not-for-profit organisation that represents qualified teachers across Victoria in the disciplines of voice and communication, drama and public speaking skills. The association also facilitates and promotes informative and interactive professional development and networking opportunities for its members.

WHAT WE DO

As educators we believe in the importance of encouraging and promoting the highest standard of teaching within the area of voice and communication, drama, public speaking and presentation techniques.

The association and its members focus on building self-confidence through encouraging outstanding speaking skills in individuals and groups.

If you are a parent or student who would like to discuss specific aspects of overcoming shyness and building strong communication skills, or if you have aspirations for the theatre, we welcome you to email us.
