“Drama is life with the dull bits cut out”
- Alfred Hitchcock
The Benefits of Studying Drama
Many people assume that drama is just acting or reading lines.. far from it!
Drama builds confidence. Throughout our lives it’s extremely important for us to build our self confidence and self esteem. If we believe in ourselves and our own abilities we can can achieve goals that we set throughout our lives.
Performing can help with concentration and memory skills. Being able to concentrate and keep focus in a scene helps to to train the mind to stay calm in stressful situations. When we learn lines we are strengthening our brain to retain more information and be more receptive to remembering.
Speech and drama helps develop language and communication skills. Being able to openly communicate your ideas, especially in front of a small group of people is invaluable in all areas of life. This is especially important now in the ‘social media’ era we are living in, where face to face communication is really lacking.
Drama helps children to cooperate, show empathy and work with others as a team. Working with others and using open communication and listening skills benefits us throughout our life in both work and social situations.
Drama helps children understand the world around them. Through classes many different real life situations and scenarios are workshopped through different exercises which opens students minds to the real world.
It develops emotional intelligence. When students study different characters and their emotions and what drives them to act they way they do they can also become more aware of their own emotions and in turn have a better understanding of themselves.
Students learn to express their ideas, think in different ways and think outside of the box. They learn about their strengths and to celebrate their uniqueness and diversity.
They build trust with other children and learn to have positive relationships with their peers.
