The study and practice of the art of performing can elevate one’s life experience and increase self-esteem while expanding compassion and empathy. It is essential learning for students of any age. Drama class is not just for the expressive, overly dramatic child who does not prefer to do sports. Drama class is the class, above all others, that will teach them how to creatively interact with the rest of the world no matter what they do with their lives. Drama teaches them to confidently express their ideas and to create a work environment whereby all ideas and individuals are respected and listened to. This simple life lesson will benefit, not only the future actor, but also the future lawyer, doctor, CEO, manager, teacher, police officer, politician, diplomat, scientist, volunteer or parent...etc.
