Taking a drama or improv course helps children think outside of the box and helps them find their sense of individuality and uniqueness so they can stand out in the crowd. They’ll also be learning and building teamwork skills throughout the program. Kids in drama and improv programs learn how to take risks throughout the year, gaining an increased level of self-confidence, and they have fun and create strong friendships and lasting memories through it all!

Did you know, drama activities improve communication skills (both verbal and non-verbal) as well as reading comprehension? With the memorization of lines (or needing to think on their feet with improv) participants develop strong and clear communication skills.

Drama and improv programs include a number of activities, like:

  • Film
  • Television
  • Sketch comedy
  • Dramatic sketches
  • Stage/theatre productions
  • Music theatre/Broadway productions
  • Improvisation
  • Stand-up
  • Writing
  • Set, costume and make-up design
  • And more

Whether your child is a beginner or is looking for advanced programs, there are drama/improv opportunities available for everyone, throughout the year. Find an afterschool or weekend program near you.
