The work we do in the drama room will help to focus and concentrate the energies of our young students while enhancing self-confidence and developing skills in:

Areas of study include:

Classroom overviews:

Through the work available in both of these classrooms social-emotional skills can flourish. Children will learn to believe in themselves while working to support others. Creative expression will be fostered in a non-threatening environment in which all children are encouraged to develop at their own pace while working closely with others.

The school year culminates in the production of a series of short performances. Each child will be cast based on personal strengths and a group dynamic. We look forward to working closely with each student throughout the year to build upon the unique skills of each individual while building a community of creativity and cooperation.
