Why Are Drama Classes so Important in Schools?

As a parent, you may not be particularly concerned with your child’s drama classes and instead choose to focus on their core subjects, such as English, Maths and Science. However, the importance of drama classes, especially for younger pupils, should not be overlooked. I have teamed up with an independent school in Richmond to explore the benefits of drama lessons in further detail. 

One of the key advantages to drama classes is that they help even the shyest of children to become more confident. It might not happen after the first lesson, but with time, students are given the self-esteem required to speak up, coherently, in front of a crowd of people. What’s more, by having to express themselves, both verbally and through body language, they will become better communicators. 

In drama lessons, children are encouraged to listen to the ideas of their peers and take turns. This boosts their ability to concentrate, which is a vital skill across all other areas of the curriculum as well as in their personal lives. 

The themes explored in drama classes, both imaginary and based on real life events, will help pupils develop a stronger understanding of the world around them. This will help them to become more inquisitive and thoughtful and spark interests that they might not have otherwise come across. What’s more, the school curriculum usually explores similar themes across different subjects, so if they study a Shakespeare play in drama, they might be able to use their newfound knowledge in their English lessons. 

As you can see, all of the skills developed through drama lessons (and the above concepts are just a few of many) can be transferred to other areas of your child’s education and general development. With that said, drama classes should not be taken for granted. In fact, you may even want to encourage your child to join a drama club after school, to take these skills one step further.
