Drama Interaction is a creative and performing arts program dedicated to fostering expression and empowerment of Students with special needs. Drama Interaction combines the unique talents and passions of performing artists and special education professionals. We are committed to finding the talents and strengths of each Student through performing arts experience in theater, music, dance and puppetry. Our special artists gain confidence through the arts to express their emotions, thoughts and ideas in new ways.
Through Drama Interaction, students will improve interpersonal skills, communication skills, problem solving skills and they will enjoy shared social experiences. Drama Interaction offers our artists the opportunity to nurture critical social and academic skills that bridge the gap between students with special needs and their typically performing peers.
Our artistic goals help individuals with various physical and developmental challenges to develop life skills through the performing arts. Specifically, we endeavor to help students learn how to physically express themselves through dance and movement, to improve verbal and non-verbal communication ability and to explore the value of storytelling through the art of theatre.
Our approach to performing arts education is process-oriented rather than product oriented, and while there will be opportunities to share the learning through performance, our primary aim is to provide a supportive and nurturing environment where our students may explore their full potential as creative human beings. We want each student to leave our classes with a love of the performing arts and the desire to be freely expressive in their daily lives.
