Power Drama School

 

Power Drama School was founded in August 2012, currently the school provides five Saturday classes from 9.30 – 13.30 and two Thursday classes from 18.30 – 20.30 covering Drama, Dance & Singing in St. Macullin’s Centre, Lusk.

Our mission is to provide students with an opportunity to experience all aspects of Performing Arts – Drama, Dance and Singing, to use their imagination, learn new skills, improve their self-confidence, meet new people & have fun in a safe, inclusive and supportive environment.

Power Drama School is committed to producing quality plays and ensuring that all students have the opportunity to showcase their talents and perform on a regular basis.

We offer Speech and Drama Exams through the Leinster School of Music and Drama. All students also have the opportunity to perform at the Speech and Drama Teachers of Ireland Feis.

Activities

Creativity

Our classes promote team-work (team-building games / working together as a cast). Participating in Performing Arts help students increase their self-esteem and confidence. Allows children to express themselves creatively. Promotes understanding and empathy (by taking on the role of another character children get the opportunity to learn how to “walk in the shoes of someone else”)

Dancing

Problem solving and co-operation (children work together to develop ideas with one another, they must discuss and agree on outcomes for improvisations and team-work activities). Spatial awareness (students learn not to “block” each other on stage, they learn to create patterns and shapes with their bodies through dance and movement). Reading and speaking; through the use of tongue twisters, script reading etc students practice reading and speaking. Children learn to emphasize certain words, phrases and how to project their voices properly.

Fun

Dancing is a great form of exercise and helps students improve flexibility, balance and increase energy. Singing has been proven to reduce stress, improve breathing, improve sense of rhythm, promotes learning in children. Relaxation and fun: drama gives students an outlet to express themselves freely, drama games are fun and allow students to play and relax.
