About Valley Drama School

Our mandate is to foster a supportive environment where children can feel safe to explore their creativity. We believe that drama is a unique and powerful way to learn about culture, society, and the world. While children engage their imaginations and build their self confidence and self-reflective skills, they also in drama step into the shoes of another and deepen their understanding of empathy and responsibility. Students not only have a wonderful opportunity to develop their leadership and teamwork skills, but they will also form meaningful connections and friendships through theatre. At Valley Drama School we believe every child should have the opportunity to discover their creativity; please scroll down for more information about our scholarship program.
