The Child Drama Workshops is a professional theatre arts enrichment program for children in grades pre-K through 5th grade. Our approach integrates artistic, educational and therapeutic components. The practice of dramatic role-play and creative freedom forms a pathway to lifelong interpersonal skills and self-esteem. Professionally trained actor/educators conduct our drama workshops with the highest standards in acting technique. We offer private lessons and group drama workshops in schools and community centers throughout the state of Delaware and the eastern counties of Pennsylvania.
Early Childhood Drama (Pre-K and K)
The Early Childhood Groups develop acting techniques through our unique Story Drama Method which is designed specifically for children in pre-school and kindergarten. The Story Drama Method engages a child’s inherent ability to pretend and act out their make-believe stories. The children are guided to explore improvisational acting techniques and creative movement that connects to their stories. The children express themselves creatively and spontaneously without the use of scripts. Our Story Drama Method gives your child their own expressive voice within a safe environment thereby promoting self-awareness and self-esteem. The workshops are enhanced with puppetry, make-up, costumes and culminate with an original performance presented by the young innovative actors!
Elementary Drama (Grades 1-5)
Students in first grade through fifth grade are taught and perform the highest standards in acting skills and improvisational techniques. Characterization and creative role-playing are explored during the weekly workshops. The children participate in a variety of fun-packed theater games which are designed to promote self-esteem and creative problem-solving skills. The children engage in creative movement activities as well as musical theater dance. The creative process includes prop and stage set design instruction. The workshop is enhanced with the use of professional theater makeup, costumes, and props. An original performance piece is developed and performed for parents and peers at the end of each session.
