our history

How did we start?

ProEnglish Drama School birth date is 20.09.2014. It started as regular meetings of English-speaking theatre studio under guidance of Alex Borovenskiy. First 2 year we had 20 students. Starting from 2016 more team members joined: we invited an administrator to work with us and 2 more acting coaches. Each year the team, number of groups and students were growing. In 2018 the institution divided into a professional independent English-speaking theatre ProEnglish Theatre and acting educational centre ProEnglish Drama School. So, the history of the theatre dates back to January 20, 2018, when the play “Cripples of Inishmaan” (originally Drama School performance) was performed with professional actors.
