Research has revealed the positive impact of performing arts raining on a student’s physical, social, emotional and cognitive development.

SELF CONFIDENCE - Taking risks in class and performing in front of an audience teaches students to trust their ideas and abilities. This confidence then applies to school, career and life.

IMAGINATION - Making creative choices, thinking up new ideas, and interpreting material in a new way are all essential skills. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge”.

FITNESS - Movement in drama games, and particularly dance, improves flexibility, coordination, balance, control and overall body fitness.

COMMUNICATION - Performing arts enhance both verbal and non-verbal expression of ideas.  It improves voice projection, articulation, pronunciation, fluency and how to express oneself with the body. Listening and observation aptitude are also developed through drama games, being an audience, rehearsing and performing.

CONCENTRATION - Playing, practising and performing develop a sustained focus of body, mind and voice.

PROBLEM SOLVING - Students learn how to communicate the who, why, what, where to the audience; problems that have to be overcome through the rehearsal process. Techniques like improvisation help foster quick-thinking solutions. Pupils also learn the essential art (sometimes the hard way!) of how to deal with the difficulties that arise through working with others.

MEMORY - Rehearsing and performing words, lyrics, movements and cues tightens this valuable skill like a muscle.

RELAXATION - Many drama activities reduce stress by releasing mental, physical and emotional tension.

And of course…

FUN! - Drama brings games, laughter, and humour to learning, which all improve motivation and help reduce stress.
