Theatre
“Creativity in education is as important as literacy, and we need to give it the same status.”– Sir Ken Robinson,
Since ages, man has sought to express the stirrings of his soul, the search for something beyond the mundane through the medium of arts. Drama in itself is a complete form of arts. It includes in its framework acting, dialogue, poetry, music, dance, sound etc.
It provides students with an opportunity to engage the mind, the body and emotions into a collaborative expression. It also develops the personality of the students, moulds their character and develops mental skills. Students learn the art of voice modulation, mime, story building etc. DPSG leaves no stone unturned to nurture these traits in its students. Theatre classes are conducted throughout the year . Every class has a period allocated in the time table. Young DPSGiites are always willing to widen their learning horizons to embrace and revel in the universality of various art forms.
