Lower School Drama
Drama is important for developing confidence, expressiveness, and creativity in each child using movement, dialogue, pantomime, and improvisation. Students learn about creating, designing, playwriting, directing, and acting through a variety of literature choices and theater exercises.
A combination of independent and small group work helps to develop intrapersonal skills used in creative drama. Each grade works on projects that teach them skills not only for the stage, but for confidence in every day life. Each year, the fourth-grade students put on a play which they help write; each student has a speaking role.
