Drama Classes designed to help stop bullying

ACT UP! To Stop Bullying

Drama Kids is proud to introduce our newest initiative – ACT UP! to Stop Bullying. This series of anti-bullying workshops are designed for elementary students, 3rd through 5th graders, and utilizes a variety of student participatory drama activities and group discussions to teach children about the various forms of bullying and the ways in which students can properly respond.

Specifically, the anti-bullying workshops are designed to help elementary students:

  • Understand the many and different forms of bullying, from physical and verbal attacks to more subtle forms like purposefully excluding someone from a group
  • See the different roles they can play when bullying occurs, from silent participant to observer to preventer
  • Reinforce that their negative feelings about bullying are very common and shared with their peers
  • Learn how to model good behavior
  • Role play to learn how to identify bullying and practice safe and effective interventions

Drama Kids Provides

  • Imaginative learning experiences that also include occasional fun class performances to enhance the experience.
  • Highly qualified and specially trained teachers.
  • New creative lessons in each class, proven to both fun and highly developmental.
  • Programs in community centers, schools and other convenient locations.
