Our classes participated in the Kids are Dramatic program and we spent 2 full hours learning about actors and practicing being actors. My students, aged 5-7, were fully engaged and enjoyed all aspects of the experience. I could see them becoming more confident in themselves, taking chances and learning from our teachers and each other. This type of experience is so valuable to show each student that they are capable of so much and that with practice and training, they are able to learn new skills and apply them right away.
I love that my students were able to learn from artists in Ottawa and I hope to be able to participate in more programs through the Salamander Theater Company.
