It is important for children to be creative, to be able to express themselves and to gain understanding of the world. Drama education provides a safe place for children to practice creativity and take personal risks in a venue that celebrates success with every production or performance, and builds self-confidence by allowing children to express themselves to others – whether that is on a stage or in everyday relationships. Drama can be a terrific medium for keeping children active and healthy. It can boost self esteem, improve public speaking, and provide a place to practice creativity.
Drama education is a powerful teaching and learning tool with profound positive effects on a student's cognitive, social, emotional, and physical development. The benefits of regular drama education spill over into all school subjects and everyday life.
