Drama develops the whole person — emotionally, physically, intellectually, imaginatively, aesthetically and socially. Drama classes foster positive group interaction as students learn to make accommodations in order to pursue shared goals. Dramatic growth parallels the natural development of the student and is encouraged in a non-competitive atmosphere that is cooperative, supportive, joyful yet challenging.
