The UAS drama program is offered at grade levels from Elementary through High School.
Drama is a subject discipline that emphasizes the use of the intellect as well as the development of a person´s sensitivity, creativity, and the capacity to make reasoned, aesthetic decisions. Because drama is concerned with the uniqueness of the individual, students who participate in drama and theater activities acquire knowledge of and regard for themselves and others. This discipline helps develop a positive self-concept, creative thinking and an ability to interact successfully with others.
Students involved in the drama program develop poise, confidence, as well as ease and versatility in verbal presentation. Drama develops the creative, critical, and communicative potential of all students. Students tend to respond with vigor and dedication to drama class activities. It is a powerful subject for enriching the entire curriculum.
Each drama class and after school club features a presentation to fellow students at the conclusion of the quarter or semester.
