GET SMART ABOUT DRAMA, MUSIC and MOVEMENT FOR KIDS!



DRAMA - MUSIC AND MOVEMENT are important and essential for young children.


There is a close connection between movement and learning in a child’s early development.
  • Children develop an awareness of their own bodies in relation to space and other people through music and movement.
  • Music and movement teach children to expand their ideas on basic concepts: fast, slow, up, down, big, small.  Think in terms of how you move your body in these ways.
  • Active musical games stimulate thought patterns that are not used a great deal with other cognitive thinking.
  • Music and Movement presents and opportunity for sequential active learning.  Drama builds on this learning curve.
  • Drama helps to develop the ability to focus and attend to a task in a group setting.
     When the time comes for dreaded public speaking, music and movement, drama children have already lived through it.
