Our drama classes improve self confidence, imagination, concentration and communication skills. Taking risks in class and performing for an audience teaches students to trust their ideas and abilities. The confidence gained in class applies to school, career and life. Playing, practising and performing material in class helps to develop a sustained focus of mind, body and voice. Our drama curriculum enhances verbal and non verbal expression of ideas. It improves voice projection, articulation and fluency with language. Drama brings play, humour and laughter to learning, thus improving motivation and reducing stress.
