There is a lot of established research about the positive influences from drama, theatre and the performing arts, especially for children & young people. The benefits can be physical, emotional and social. Being creative and learning to make creative choices help young people to be better at thinking of new ideas, allowing them to view the world around them in new ways. Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Through their workshops and productionsRYT aims to develop the next generation of ‘big thinkers’ by instilling: Self-Confidence, Imagination, Empathy, Cooperation, Concentration, Communication Skills, Emotional Outlet, Physical Fitness, Memory and an Appreciation for Arts and Culture.
