Bringing exciting Juilliard Drama to Primary this year!

My name is Ms. Emily and I am from England. I have been teaching for 5 years, and I this is my second year at BVIS, teaching in year 2. I studied at Plymouth University and have a BA Honours degree in Theatre and Performance. Following on from this I completed a PGCE at Exeter University specialising in English.

Could you share with us further about your visit to Juilliard? 

I was extremely excited about the opportunity to join the Julliard training which took place in New York for one week in August. The purpose of the course was to support primary and secondary teachers in implementing Juilliard drama practice into the curriculum. During the course, we took part in a range of different workshops. This allowed us to understand the rationale, philosophy and ethos of the Juilliard ‘Creative Classroom’ curriculum. The workshops also enabled us to understand how the Juilliard  curriculum can be developed in our individual schools. I learnt a huge amount during the course, but the most important was the impact that drama can have on our children. The Juilliard creative classroom is designed to enable our children to be collaborative, creative, empathetic, curious and expressive. All of these learner characteristics are life skills that can support them in a variety of areas of education.  

In what way were you most impressed by Juilliard? 

I was hugely impressed by the way that the 'Creative Classroom' has been developed as a way of teaching drama. It has been carefully structured to ensure that all children develop their creative skills through reflection and collaboration. There are also links to highly sophisticated work which enables our children to experience professional artistry.

What has been the impact of your visit to Juilliard upon BVIS Primary drama education?

I led two workshop sessions for our Primary staff in our August training days. This allowed me to bring back what I have learnt from the course and share it with teachers and teaching assistants. We had lots of fun exploring the workshops and then we discussed the benefits for our children. This year we will be developing the Juilliard programme alongside the curriculum we already offer in primary. It is an exciting opportunity to develop our children’s skills in becoming more confident with performing.  

Benefits of drama education for children

There are a range of benefits from learning drama. Drama can foster a range of skills within children. It develops children’s empathy and ability to work within a team. It enables them to learn to reflect, evaluate and improve their work. It is also hugely important in allowing children to gain confidence when speaking publicly and communicating their thoughts and feelings!
