Drama involves interpreting, inventing and appreciating dramatic sequences. Drama education develops the students’ artistic sensibility, creative potential, acting abilities and skills in self-expression and communication. In the drama classroom, students express their ideas, their personal vision of the world, the visions of their classmates and those of playwrights or other creators.
