Drama is a fun and healthy activity for children. Drama helps children improve their English language skill, inner rhythm, strength, timing, and aides their confidence. In drama we express ourselves with movement and words, which enhances the children’s ability to concentrate and help them to become more independent. The discipline in drama teaches the children to listen, interpret and express themselves in a positive form by speaking and acting.
