Shakespeare Was Right. All The World Is a Stage...

Ok. We admit it.  Our Drama Classes are incredibly entertaining.  In fact, they are so much fun that your kids may even ask if they can come back to class again this week! You may begin to wonder how your children can have such an amazing time and still be learning.  The answer is simple.  We infuse our drama curriculum with high-energy, interactive activities and methods designed to be as entertaining as they are educational. 


In the real world, we don’t get a dress rehearsal.  We are all performing in a live, unscripted, unrehearsed show every minute of every day.  By allowing students to participate in the dramatic arts, they gain valuable knowledge and skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.  For example, when someone is an effective communicator, they are often comfortable and confident in social situations.  This in turn leads to stronger skills in conveying information at a professional level.  The knowledge learned in a drama class can also translate into academic and workplace successes(8).
