What is involved in drama training?

Every program has a different focus and skill development but common features of workshops include opportunities for our young actors to learn both about themselves and about others. Drama is an opportunity to discover more about oneself and one's world. To learn. To practice. To improve and to improvise. And, in the end, to become a better version on oneself.

Acting is more than speaking words from a page. 

Through the mind an actor:

explores character development

researches historical scenarios

imagines new worlds and situations

interprets emotions and ideas


Through the body an actor:

expresses body language

demonstrates objects and ideas through mime

encourages feeling through movement and tableau

establishes dance and rhythm

Through the voice an actor:

interprets accents

conducts vocal work

challenges fellow actors

brings music to the stage


Through listening an actor:

learns to improvise

understands experimentation and exploration

grasps timing

acquires a sense of self and character


Through an audience an actor:

understands about themselves and their craft

explores the art of performance

touches the world around them

reflects on the needs of others
