Lower School Creative Dramatics Outcomes
Creative drama is an integrative process that develops imaginative thought and creative expression in children. Through use of movement, pantomime, story dramatization, improvisation, and group discussion, children acquire language and communication skills, social awareness, problem-solving abilities, self-concept enhancement, an understanding of theatre, and life skills. The principal goal of creative dramatics is to guide a child to self-fulfillment through theatre techniques, not to nurture professional child actors.
