It has been scientifically proven that a child’s brain can be significantly wired for literacy by early exposure to developmentally enriching activities like drama. Parents who read and talk to their children early and often and encourage them to use a diversity of words are setting them up for academic success. Creative arts participation increases test scores and promotes academic achievement. Drama Kids International is a world-renowned developmental program replete with these opportunities.

Drama Kids Bellevue acting classes for kids and after school program are an exciting way to engage a child in activities that develop decoding and comprehension skills, skills researchers say are often most lacking in children who struggle with reading.  Drama Kids infuses developmental skills into our high-energy, full school year sessions. The Drama Kids difference is child-focused rather than audience focused. Bellevue acting classes help build creative thinking, literacy, confidence, verbal expression, leadership and team building skills.

Our director, Lisa Loomis is growing Drama Kids International into the premier drama program on the Eastside by “making sure kids and teens feel encouraged and have a positive experience, get individual attention and to help them make the most of their gifts and abilities.” Classes are now forming and our enrollment process is underway. We serve the communities of  Redmond, Kirkland and Bellevue with acting classes for kids and after school programs. Please see the Class Schedule tab to view classes in your area.
