Speech & Drama Benefits

  1. Overcome stage fright and fear of public speaking.
    The more often you stand on stage, the more you conquer your fear!
  2. Develop presentation skills for the future.
    Knowing when to emphasize, pause and move is essential to presenting well.
  3. Improve your pronunciation, enunciation and diction.
    Speaking correctly, clearly, and with the right choice of words helps to keep your audience engaged.

    Understanding why characters in a story react in situations fosters empathy and helps to understand your own emotions.
  5. Engage in ensemble performances and group activities.
    Working together with your classmates on stage helps to build trust with each other.
  6. Explore different cultures and perspectives through dramatic storytelling.
    Learn about how Savitri, the ancient Indian goddess, shows her love to how a mouse deer tricks other animals to doing what it wants!

EM Drama’s Philosophy

Empathy – We seek to understand you.
We believe that fostering empathy for the people around us should begin at a young age. To understand each other better. To be better human beings.

Embody – We encourage role play.
We believe that by embodying characters in poems or plays, you foster empathy and that deepens your understanding of another person(s) when you put yourself in their shoes.

Empower – We want YOU to be confident.
We want our students to be empowered by the skills they learnt in class. With empowerment comes confidence to head out and take on the world.
