The impact of theatre arts has on society is far reaching, and the benefits absolutely apply to kids! Highlighted below are ways we know children benefit when theatre is a part of their development.
When kids participate in theatre, they tend to do better in school. Students engaged in arts learning have higher GPAs, standardized test scores, and college-going rates as well as lower drop-out rates.
Theatre arts helps children develop their creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Getting your children involved in theatre from an early age will encourage creative thinking, which will prove to be an advantage throughout their life.
Theatre exposes kids to different cultures and ideas. It also helps them develop empathy. Each time they step into a character’s shoes, they see things from their perspective.
Children’s theatre helps students feel like they are part of the community. Students who are involved in the arts have shown to be more likely to engage in volunteer work and attend college.
Theatre and the performing arts can help build confidence in children. It can help children feel more self-assured and confident in their own abilities.
The act of being on stage and performing in front of an audience helps children improve their presentation and communication skills. Rehearsing and being on stage with others fosters team building, a skill which a child can carry with them on and off the stage.
Theatre is fun for children of all ages, and it’s a great way for them to make new friends. Many children develop lifelong friends through theatre, and they look forward to each new production.
