10 benefits your child may get from taking creative drama lessons with Sunshine Drama

If you’ve found this page, chances are you're looking to convince yourself why you should send your child to drama lessons. Frankly if you’ve got this far, just send them! Send them to Sunshine Drama!

But if you need to know some of the benefits that your child may gain from taking classes, have a read below.
  1. Accomplishing role play, movement, mime, improvisation, team work and using props imaginatively etc, provides fun and meaningful learning experiences that lead to students feeling confident, happy with a strong sense of self esteem.
  2. Children will learn to think on their feet. Or head, depending on the exercise!
  3. Through mime (conveying action, character, or emotion using only gesture, facial expression, and movement), students will develop their non verbal communication skills.
  4. Drama classes provide the opportunity to express their creative energy with out fear of failure in a supportive and positive environment.
  5. Learning by doing is one of the greatest ways to remember something. Learning how to be confident as you become confident  is treasured learning that will stay with a child forever. 
  6. Fast motion. Stop motion. Slow motion. Kids will learn how to change their gears mid moment, honing their ability to listen and follow instructions. 
  7. If there’s one fear adults often have, it’s speaking in public in front of an audience. Creative drama helps children with learning to use their voice effectively and speak and perform in front of their peers. As students do this more regularly, the more confident they will become. 
  8. Who doesn’t love dressing up?
  9. A child’s imagination knows no bounds. They will learn to create the most complex characters from different ideas, scene or props. Through a fun, playful environment, the true creative level of a child will come out. 
  10. Carpe Diem has almost become a clich├ęd saying, but seizing the day and moment is what drama is all about. Letting children have their own moments of self-discovery and growth as they share the fun and joy that drama brings is truly a special gift.
