With the year end performance approaching, the students have been working really hard to practice for their big performances! The importance of drama and performing arts in education is significant. Whether children have the opportunity to perform in theatre productions or help out behind the scenes, studying Drama and Performing Arts not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it also provides an ideal balance in students’ patterns of study. Students gain important life skills as they learn the value of critical feedback, both positive and constructive. Children have the opportunity to celebrate the richness and depth of human expression in all of its forms. Through creative expression students learn to comprehend our world better and are therefore better equipped to navigate the challenges they might be faced with later in life. Here are some pictures of our practice at the theater this past week!
