Theatre Arts

Learn from our team of professional actors at Artmania Drama programs at the Music Box.

Students will learn about working in a group and finding confidence in front of their peers. Drama teaches many life skills that can translate universally such as listening, communicating, understanding emotions and practicing presence. Through story-telling and imagination, students will learn skills that can help them focus and work in a creative way.
