Welcome to Drama

  • Learning drama helps students develop creativity, confidence, and communication skills.  Dramatic exploration allows students to express their feelings, emotions, thoughts, dreams, and opinions.  In addition, drama challenges students' perceptions about the world around them and helps participants develop empathy and understanding towards others. Students will learn about performance, design, and history; and have a lot of fun doing it!
