What skills will students learn in theatre arts class?

Posted by:

By taking any art, students are not only expanding their horizons and getting a deeper look into that specific art, they are also learning important, soft skills. These include teamwork, communication, empathy, emotional identification, and planning skills. Students in theatre learn about their body and how it can be used to tell stories and share emotions; they learn about utilizing their voice through articulation and projection activities. When we focus on costumes, we learn about the history of clothing in certain cultures as well as how to design outfits to tell stories. Students who participate in theatre also show a growth of confidence when standing in front of crowds. There is so much to be learned in theatre that it's impossible to list them all!
