Strengthen Character and Build Confidence by Attending Drama Classes

Through acting exercises, students learn to become
comfortable speaking in front of each other. As they become more used to the
environment, their confidence increases accordingly. Drama classes enable
children to feel more confident about public speaking, as they believe it is
not themselves but their characters who are speaking. Additionally, drama focuses
on vocal projection, articulation, and timing, which are all aspects that trip
up the anxious public speaker. Armed with the confidence they gain from our classes,
the pupils take to the stage with ease. Not only will this assist child in
public speaking, but also throughout the course of their lives. Self-expression
is important in an endless number of life scenarios, which may include: Spoken
Reports and Exams – Job Interviews – First Dates – Phone Skills

Developing Empathy and Communication

Actors are always embodying new characters, and it is through character
development that they get in touch with the thoughts and feelings of the
personas they embody. By acting, the pupils have to figure out what is
motivating their characters to behave the way they do. Getting in touch with
the desires of their character prompts the pupils to be more attuned to their
own feelings. A dialogue between real-life scenarios and acting is created to
help them deal with situations in the real world.

Understanding People through Character Exploration

By understanding the motivations of different characters, the pupils are able
to better understand the people around them. Thus, their ability to be attuned
to the needs of others increases their capacity for empathy. Through our
classes, pupils will be able to empathise and communicate effectively in their
professional and personal lives long after the stage curtain closes.

Learning to Trust and Listen to Peers and Leaders

Another important skill gained through drama is the ability to work well within
a group. Through drama, students learn to take direction, lead, support, and trust
their peers. Teamwork and cooperation are critical to acting and can be learnt from
an early age.

Interact with a Diverse Scope of People

Theatre involves dancing, singing and acting, which includes performing in
front of a diverse audience. By taking part in acting classes, pupils
will learn how to interact with a wide scope of individuals from different
backgrounds. This enables the students to bounce off each other creatively,
younger students learning from older pupils. The more experienced performers
encourage the beginners, and through practice they learn about group dynamics.
Naturally, the students will discover the roles they fall into, which may be
leadership or supporting roles. As all pupils are integral to the production, each
will discover that the show does not exist without their input.
