At Duerell’s school of Music, Drama & Dance we feel that there is an emphasis on children learning to read and write and rightly so, as these are fundamental skills, but where is the interest in how well a child is communicating and how clearly and confidently they are speaking?
Good communication skills are an essential life skill, helping us make friends whilst helping to get the most out of school.
So, why is Drama good for children? It teaches them not only how to speak clearly and loudly, but with many other communication skills as well. It boosts confidence and encourages self believe and taking risks.
“We must all do theatre, to find out who we are, and to discover who we could become”. - Augusto Boal
