As parents, we want what’s best for our children. We hope they will grow up to be happy and successful adults. One of the things we can do to help them reach their potential is to expose them to drama. It helps them learn about themselves and the world around them, and acts as a catalyst to develop various social and communication skills.
But how exactly does drama play a role in nurturing a smart, talented, and confident student?
1. Drama Accelerates Brain Development
Studies have shown that what a child experiences at a young age largely determines how their brain operates later in life. Since children learn best through a well-rounded combination of sight, sound, and movement, drama can greatly sharpen your child’s memory, focus, and comprehension.
Drama classes for kids, such as the speech and drama programme offered at the MindChamps Académie of Stars, places your child at the centre of learning. Training your Champ to learn by doing is key to creating a Champion Mindset and immediately sets them apart from the crowd.
2. Drama Builds Up Social and Emotional Skills
Think of acting classes as a way to increase your child’s social interactions. The more interactions they have with their peers by acting out a scene, the more they develop the social and emotional skills needed to function well in society.
How does drama help your little Champ grow up to become a valuable member of their community? For one, it gives your child an opportunity to express and control their feelings within the limits set by society. Drama, like any other performing arts, also develops empathy, encourages conflict-resolution and promotes self-confidence.
3. Drama Enhances a Child’s Mind-Body Connection
The mind-body connection is the idea that one’s mental and emotional states are directly linked to one’s physical condition, and vice versa. An example of this is the feeling of positivity and joy one may feel after a workout.
MindChamps Académie of Stars teaches your child the importance of the mind-body connection early on through the tangible practice of quality performance arts. This will nurture in them a strong sense of responsibility for their health and well-being.
