Anyone Can Do It:
Drama is something for all ages and abilities.
Students Learn Better Communication Skills:
Students learn how to project their voice and speak clearly. They learn how to successfully communicate with others, whether one-on-one, in front of the classroom, or boardroom.
Students Use and Develop their Imagination, Creativity and Spontaneity:
Don't we all need to use our imagination?
Imagination provides possibilities for everyone.
In many fields of work it is important to be creative.
Solving many of life's obstacles uses creativity, imagination and on-the-spot decision making and problem solving.
Imagination keeps things interesting- it gives life excitement
Students Learn to Act, A Skill We all Use:
As adults it is important to act. We do it everyday. Those who are good at it have an easier time dealing with others and situations.
When we go to an interview and we are nervous, we ACT confident
When afraid of doing something unfamiliar, we ACT courageous
It's an Opportunity for Students to Grow as a Person:
Improvisation games and acting in general allows, even demands, that the students put themselves into situations physically, mentally and emotionally that they might not understand at first. By placing themselves into their character and searching their own feelings, students become more aware of themselves and aware and connected to the world around them. They gain a better understanding of others and learn empathy and compassion.
Students Increase their Confidence:
Getting in front of one's peers or an audience is not easy. When a student learns the correct way to act, when they learn about posture, breathing, gesturing, speaking clearly, and expressing themselves through their character and they perform in class or on-stage, they become a more confident person.
It's Fun, Healthy and Educational
Skills are learned through games and activities. Students of all ages get to act silly and learn how to be spontaneous. They also have a healthy outlet to express themselves
Through drama, students learn how to express their feelings appropriately for the situation, and learn self control.
When a student has to learn a new skill to portray their character they are playing, or when a student has to research history to understand the time period of the play they are working on, education and learning become fun.
