The Drama Kids after-school program and summer camps are specially designed to build self-confidence, as well as strong speaking and acting skills through the fun and creativity of drama. We believe that enthusiastic students who speak out clearly and relate confidently with their peers develop skills that make the journey through life much easier. Above all, our drama classes are fast-paced, great fun, and have new activities each week. We know that drama develops kids! We take great pride in our program and are committed to making sure our students have every opportunity to express themselves creatively.
