The YIT Theatre Education curriculum aims to develop students’ expression of the body, voice, imagination, personalizing, improvisation, external stimuli, and script analysis. Along with the basic essentials of drama students will also be challenged to develop their sense of curiosity, enhance their aesthetic knowledge, fulfill enjoyment and achievement through exploring, playing roles, and imagining situations, actions and ideas. Students will learn how to perform pieces that suit them well, and show off their individuality, while also acquiring basic stage etiquette.
