To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Dramatic Arts

Drama is a unique tool that explores and expresses human feelings. In our classroom, we will practice and combine the essential elements of an actor including movement, voice, and dialogue. The students will explore theatre through acting games, improvisations, choreography, musicality, auditioning, rehearsals, and productions. These dramatic exercises support learning across the students’ curriculum by cultivating the development of verbal, non-verbal, written and unwritten communication, increasing problem-solving skills, developing intuition, and bolstering self-esteem.

The objective for the drama class, both individually and collectively, is to explore, shape and represent ideas, feelings and their consequences in symbolic or dramatic form by enacting both real and imagined events through role-play, play-making, and performances.
