Outreach and Education at the Gaiety School of Acting
Drama is not simply a subject, but also, and more importantly, a method. It is both a creative art form and a learning tool that we believe offers vital educational opportunity. The Gaiety School of Acting offers courses that can help improve and develop personal skills or for organisations to approach social issues in a fun way. The benefits of drama for children, teenagers and young adults have been widely acknowledged. Among the benefits are improved communication skills, independent and critical thinking, social growth and teamwork. Our courses also encourage the development of imagination and aesthetic awareness, healthy release of emotion and a boost in self-esteem.
