As an administrator I have been every pleased with the Drama Kids International program. Working with the DKI staff has been a pleasure. They are always available to answer questions and provide any information needed so that the running of the program goes smoothly. They are professional and take their role in educating the “whole” child very seriously. The response from both our students and parents has been overwhelmingly positive.
The program is structured to enhance a child’s ability to think critically, to speak with confidence in front of an audience, and to promote many of the academic skills that are taught in the classroom such as making inferences, interpreting author’s point of view, etc.
The DKI staff handle all of the “housekeeping” aspects of the program as well. They register the students, take responsibility for getting them to their after school sessions and the dismissal process. They do it all. As certified educators themselves, I have confidence in what they do and their level of commitment to the kids and the program. I am thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity to my students and parents for the full year in 2012-2013!

Thank you for the awesome experience my daughter, Kylee, has had in Drama Kids! She has always been extremely shy, but after Drama Kids she has now started coming out of her shell and speaks up and speaks clearly! We plan on enrolling her again this fall!

I wanted to let you know how my son has really shown a remarkable change in school. He speaks more clearly and was in a school production where he used projection like I have never seen before. This change was noticed only after he started with Drama Kids. Thanks for providing such a wonderful program to the students in the Keller area.

What a wonderful Spring Performance! We were pleasantly surprised to see the amazing job that you have done with these kids. We knew that Andrew was enjoying class each week, but we can see now that it has done so much to help him become more confident and poised. THANK YOU DRAMA KIDS! We especially appreciate the time you take with each student, and the way you personalize the experience to each child. Andrew feels like a very special part of your group. Keep up the good work!

Exceeded my Expectations
Luke and Carl attended a Drama Kids camp this past summer and the program exceeded my expectations by miles. My goal in sending the boys to this camp was to see if the program lived up to its advertised promise of boosting self-esteem and confidence in kids. Luke, our oldest (5 yrs), had leaned on the shy-side of interaction with other kids and adults especially. I did not expect him to enjoy play-acting scenes and role-playing characters with a group of kids. He is engineer- and sports-minded. I was VERY surprised. He loved going each day and was disappointed when the week ended. The last day of camp the parents were invited to see a series of small skits put on by the kids, and there was Luke, uninhibited, free to speak and dramatize without fear. Our younger son, Carl (4 yrs) was already a gregarious and outgoing type, so he fit right in and enjoyed himself playing characters and reciting small, memorized parts in the skits. The program also showed me how much kids are capable of memorizing in a short amount of time. The methods used by Drama Kids are well researched and well executed. I recommend it to everyone. All types of children can benefit from Drama Kids International.
