Kaiya Jones presents
Wether you are young or young at heart, we nurture the next generation of confident, creative and resilient actors to deal with the demands of the industry.
Meet the Mentor
Hi, I'm Kaiya, Director of Young Actors Mentoring.
Kaiya is an award winning actor and director who has been working as a professionally since the age of 10 on shows such as Neighbours, Turn Up The Volume, Party Tricks and Harrow. Masters graduate of the prestigious Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. Kaiya has just taught the Youth Program at
16th St Actors Studio and is currently teaching private acting sessions and adult classes at TAFTA.
How can we help?
We understand that being a passionate and empathetic actor comes with professional pressures, a constantly tested imagination and navigation of ones emotions . Whilst self determination is a brilliant start, we all need the support and guidance of those who've come before us when it comes to achieving our dreams.
Words from our students & parents
“From a parent's perspective, Kaiya is wonderful to work with!(...)always happy to answer any questions I may have about classes or about the industry in general. (...) Both my children attend drama groups which are great, but the one to one mentoring that they get with Kaiya helps to enhance and fine tune their skills and provides an additional level of turning that can't be achieved in a group setting.”
" She is an outstanding teacher and an amazing person who only wishes the best for her students and I have grown immensely as an actor and a person.(...) Kaiya understands young actors and she has made me way more comfortable, learning the ways on set and in front of a camera.”

"Kaiya goes above and beyond for River. She not only provides incredible teaching but has educated us on professional procedures like self-tapes and interpreting scripts. She is awesome!
