We start each day by meeting everyone and developing individual characters appropriate for the big questions we’re asking in the drama. We play these characters in any number of situations throughout the day through process drama as we create our story and then share our work with grown-ups in a brief, fun sharing at the end of each day.

Our “sharing” is scheduled at 4:30PM each day at BAL, at our 8th Avenue studio. We encourage parents and/or caregivers to join, however we do understand that scheduling is sometimes difficult. As long as your child knows in advance, our staff will always be present for your children as their “audience,” and will provide a lot of support!

What to bring: Please have your child come in clothing they can move in, one water bottle, two healthy snacks, and a NUT FREE lunch.

What is a Process Drama?
“Process drama is a dynamic teaching methodology in which the teacher and the students work together to create an imaginary dramatic world and work within that world to explore a particular problem, situation, theme, or series of related themes, not for a separate audience, but for the benefit of the participants themselves.

In a process drama, students play a range of roles and engage in a variety of reflective out-of-role activities, requiring them to think beyond their own points of view and consider the topic from multiple perspectives. They emerge with an expanded self-awareness, and a greater sense of the challenges and the possibilities facing the society in which they live.

Process drama also carries the potential for rigorous, standards-based learning to occur. Students not only explore the dynamics, relationships, and conflicts that shape a given situation, but also to acquire factual knowledge related to the topic of the drama.” (from TESOL Drama)
