Science has proven that art is essential for people of all ages. As they say, Art Alone Endures!” Introducing the dramatic arts into your child’s life is beneficial to their mental and social development. Drama is also fun, it introduces students to literature, helps them get in touch with their feelings and so much more. We offer youth theatre classes in our professional Monroe NY studio.
Here are just some of the benefits of theater classes for children
Engaging your child in a theatre class can help improve their self-confidence. By pushing their comfort zone and encouraging them to take risks, drama can be a good confidence booster. This confidence is something that your child will be able to take and apply to their daily life in school, work, and all other aspects of life.
Theatre encourages students to be creative and think outside of the box. This helps them develop ideas, which can help them problem solve, learn, and view the world in a new way. Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” With theater studies, your child gets immersed in both knowledge and imagination.
The ability to feel and connect with another person is extremely important. Having this skill sets them up for a successful social life and provides them with the skills that they can apply outside the theater. The mindset that they have to get in, in order to play and embody a specific character, allows them to have an open mind and view to many situations, backgrounds, and cultures.
One of the biggest benefits that any of the performing art forms can bring is discipline. Showing your child commitment and responsibility will help set them apart from others. It also allows them to learn how to work in an environment that requires you to do things in a certain way. Theater shows them that hard work, and specifically hard work over a long period of time, leads to results and gratification in the long run.
Theater is a form of verbal communication, that also involves a lot of non-verbal communication. Non-verbal communication is a very useful communication tool. Not only does theater involve and improve your child’s vocal projection, articulation, tone of speech, and expression, but it also helps develop listening and observation skills.
