How Joining a Theater Group or Acting Class Can Develop Creativity in Children
by Annabelle Fee
Your child is a fan of all those Disney Channel shows and has developed an interest in joining the school's theater group. What do you do? Should you let your child take part in a school's play or join an acting class as you might think it could affect their academic performance?
The answer should ideally be yes! Not only your child will enjoy being a part of a school play, he will also benefit from it in a lot of other ways that help could him/her to become a confident, innovative, and creative individual.
Participating in drama classes could expand their imaginative ideas and the way they think and approach things in their everyday lives. And the participation in such activities does not affect the overall academic performance of the children.
Quite the contrary, it enhances the academic performance of the children; there have been numerous studies that could prove that the students who participate in extracurricular activities such as drama and theater tend to be smarter and score higher as compared to the children who don't as far as it is concerned.
