This summer at Vision Rainbow! Rainbow dreams bring to you a "Theatre workshop" aged 9 to 15 years by Danish - a co-creator at "Vision Rainbow" - a free learning space for children. He is also an actor and production manager at "Darpan Theatre".
The workshop is a 15 session production oriented workshop - where we close with a performance by the children at the end of the workshop. There is a lot of established research about the positive influences of drama, theatre, and the performing arts, especially on young people. The benefits are physical, emotional, social, and they help to develop a healthy appreciation of culture and the arts.

Read on to know more about how theater helps children and why this summer is perhaps a very good idea to get them to explore themselves through drama and expression!
1. Self-Confidence Aspects of performing arts, especially improvisation, helps children to understand how to think outside the box and explore going into unfamiliar situations.
2. Imagination Being creative and learning to make creative choices helps thinking of new ideas, allowing them to view the world around them in new ways.
3. Empathy Understanding characters, roles and the subtext of plays and musicals allows students to relate better to different situations, backgrounds, and cultures. It encourages to show compassion and tolerance for others.
4. Cooperation Theatre is a collaboration of different players and in many cases the quality of any performance reliance on ensemble performance. Combining the creative ideas and the abilities of all participants is required for the best outcomes. This requires all those taking part to engage in discussions, feedback, rehearsing, and performance.
5. Concentration Playing, practicing, and performing will develop the ability and skills to be able to focus the mind, the body, and the voice.
6. Communication Skills It seems obvious to say that drama, theatre and the performing arts improve verbal and nonverbal communication, but it is worth stating that this benefits young people through their life. It improves vocal projection, articulation, tone of speech and expression. Importantly is also develops listening and observation skills.
7. Fun Drama brings elements of play, humor, and laughter to those taking part – improves motivation and reduces stress.
8. Emotional Outlet Acting and drama games allow us to express a range of emotions and understand and deal with similar feelings that we may be experiencing. Aggression and tension are released in a safe, controlled environment – often allowing for a period of reflection afterward.
9. Physical Fitness Performing, even the most passive performances, requires intensive movement over a prolonged period. Many performing arts exercises improve flexibility, coordination, balance, and control.
10. Memory Rehearsing and performing lines and movements will improve memory. Your memory requires exercise, just like a muscle.
11. Appreciation for Arts and Culture! …because it will bring joy into your life.
