A letter from the Director:
My name is Christine Densmore and I am the Director of Drama Kids International in Northwest Indiana. I am very excited to be able to bring Drama Kids to our wonderful communities in Lake and Porter counties for the 3rd year! Our first two years in NWI were nothing short of amazing! The feedback we received was tremendous and I am proud that we were able to touch the lives of so many children in Northwest Indiana, and that Principals and parents have embraced this program so enthusiastically.
Children in our program are growing in confidence and are less afraid to express themselves in our classes, but more importantly, in life! I am passionate about this program and know first-hand that by participating in a program such as this, our children WILL be more confident in their own authenticity, to appreciate the differences in others, to think more creatively, to practice leadership, and to learn to speak up and communicate more effectively.
At Drama Kids, we push the tables and chairs aside and ask the students to throw their inhibitions out the window. We provide an environment that encourages students to experiment with their voices and express themselves creatively without judgment. We ask them to take risks and try a new approach at the risk of failure, then we encourage them to try again.
Through weekly participation students become braver in their choices and their self-esteem just blooms. While your child will certainly gain acting skills, our main goal is to help children and young adults develop through drama the skills they need to succeed in life. They will be able to use a well projected voice to ask questions or volunteer answers, to make friends, or participate easily in teams or study groups, to be able to discuss or share ideas fluently, to negotiate successfully, to be able to talk with adults with ease, or to have the confidence to say “NO” or stick up for themselves when necessary.
These skills will follow them as they move through school and into the “real world” to be able to interview confidently, negotiate effectively, and think on their feet. At Drama Kids we share your goal of helping your children believe fully in themselves and achieve their full potential in this world! I feel honored that you would allow the team at Drama Kids of NWI to be a part of that! I look forward to meeting you personally and grateful that you are passionate about giving your child the greatest gift possible.
