Drama Kids develops speaking skills, confidence, and acting skills in children and young adults from ages 5-12. In order to grow, students need to gain independence and self-esteem, yet work as a team. They want to be challenged and yet feel supported and praised for their efforts. All of these qualities are wonderfully built through drama and in particular, through the internationally recognized Drama Kids program.
