10 SKILLS YOUR CHILD CAN LEARN THROUGH DRAMA

 

 1. Confidence

The theatre teaches kids to take command in any situation and to overcome a fear of public speaking. It teaches them to have confidence and to learn from their mistakes through practice.
2. Creativity
Children learn how to think creatively through role-playing. Some people call it out-of-the-box thinking, and it’s a skill that comes in handy as a working adult.
3. Focus
Having to listen and contribute during a play helps to develop key focus skills. Learning the skills required in theatre teaches kids to build greater concentration and keep their minds on the current task.
4. Accountability
Kids learn how important their role is to a group activity. If they are late with their lines or don’t prepare at all, it affects the overall outcome.
5. Dedication
Kids learn dedication through practice and delivering a final result. They learn how to show up on time, develop good work habits and put forth a great effort to deliver a successful show.
6. Body language
The theatre teaches nonverbal communication. Kids learn how to show their emotions through body language and how different movements are interpreted by others.
7. Teamwork
Children learn about the importance of working together. Whether it’s a children’s orchestra or a play, kids have to learn how to collaborate and contribute for the greater success of the entire group.
8. Determination
With consistent practice and determination, kids get a feeling of accomplishment after a performance. Developing determination at a young age helps them reach their goals in the future.
9. Receiving constructive feedback
Receiving criticism something that many adults have trouble with and may look at it as a negative part of their job. Through the theatre, children learn that feedback is just another part of the learning process, not something that should be taken personally.
10. Problem solving
Kids learn critical problem-solving skills in the theatre arts. They must learn how to transform a clay ball into a cup or how their characters will act in a certain situation. These practices will help children develop an important skill that is necessary as adults.

Social Benefits

In addition to being a physical activity, acting is also a highly social activity. Acting lessons can help children improve their social skills and enable them to communicate better, learn teamwork, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.

Improved Self-esteem

As children adjust to the movements and postures required in acting, they begin to get a better sense of their bodies. Children who participate in acting also tend to have better self-esteem.

Educational Benefits

Becoming a skilled actor requires practice, discipline and focus which are all skills that can be applied to other areas in life. Students who regularly participate in acting lessons typically tend to perform better academically than their nonparticipating peers.

Emotional Maturity

Because acting is also an art form, children are learning how to creatively express their emotions as well. There are endless opportunities to share and be aware of various emotions as students experience one another and themselves through movement.
