The junior high school drama classes are designed to support students’ fluency and to develop students’ self-confidence. Students will be challenged to develop better self-expression, stage presence, artistic awareness and acting skills. This class will help students understand how art plays a role in developing and expressing personal and cultural identities. They will explore, express and communicate ideas through drama activities.

The aim of the drama classes is also to introduce them to the study of dramatic literature and a variety of theatre styles. Through the study of various types of theatre, students will become informed, perceptive, and appreciative audience members of plays from various cultures and time periods. Students will be exposed to both classical and contemporary plays, companies and theories. They will examine and compare historical influences and contexts and universal themes in dramatic literature.
