Importance of Drama
Acting can help you portray your emotions in different ways, whether that be on stage or on camera, you leave your own mind and step into somebody else's!
It also helps one form a new group of friends who share the same hobbies and passion, it gives them focus and encouragement, and I don't think drama and film is pushed and recognised as much as it should be.
Drama is all about stepping out of your comfort zone, trying things you have never tried before, playing someone completely opposite to who you usually are.
Teachers, parents, guidance etc, push you towards academic subjects i.e english, history, maths, science and drama is considered a "fun" subject, which is true, however you learn a lot more about yourself in drama classes then anywhere else, it helps you let go, be anyone you want to be!
The importance of drama and performing arts in education is significant.
Whether children have the opportunity to perform in theatre productions or help out behind the scenes, studying Drama and Performing Arts not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it also provides an ideal balance in students’ patterns of study.
It’s easy for children to become swamped in a sea of theory, which is why subjects that offer practical learning are essential.
So many skills are learnt in acting i.e organisational skills, people skills, communicational skills, motivation, commitment, independency, initiative, promptness, respect, acceptance, working under pressure, self-care, caring for others, working as a team...
Drama teaches communication and in forms of art, drama is a way for students to understand each other in several different aspects!
They develop a tolerance and become more empathetic because of a role that requires an actor to inhabit it completely so they can perform on stage. An actor needs to have a better understanding of how the world works from the eyes of another person, doesn't mean they necessarily have to agree with the character being portrayed.
All it requires is for them to understand their point of view, which I personally think it is really important in this world to see things and see the world from other peoples perspective.
Drama is challenging, because it requires a lot of imagination and thought from the actor so they can see the actions, they must also visualise the emotion, situation, surrounding etc.
People work extremely hard in this business and it isn't recognised enough!!
