Why Drama?


Why not? The old adage that Drama is just games and playing around is simply not true. The developed skills are far more reaching than most people realise. In my 15+ years of teaching, I'd estimate over 95% have no intention of becoming an actor. Most parents who enrol their children see a difference almost immediately – with higher levels of engagement, focus and pride in themselves, right from the first lesson. And this follows through into other areas of their learning and indeed their whole lives.
