We know that many children are kinesthetic learners who benefit from movement and a physical approach to education. Through dance and drama, students acquire new skills, become more self-confident with every public performance, and reinforce much of what they’ve learned in the classroom. Dramatic performances are often based on literature being studied concurrently in the classroom. Fiction is chosen from the required reading curriculum and transformed into a script, which students then perform. The arts and academic curricula work in conjunction to increase their impact and efficacy. This is the essence of a holistic education.
Drama is also integrated into music lessons, language arts, and the Global Cultural History program.
