My name is Lavanya Boon I have over 20 years experience of performing, directing and teaching. I am a passionate advocate for the arts in education, firmly believing that children have the opportunity to celebrate the richness and depth of human expression.
Whether children have the opportunity to perform in theatre productions or help out behind the scenes, studying Drama and performing arts not only engages with the creative side of the brain, it also provided an ideal balance in students patterns of study.
I enjoy witnessing students find their ‘voice’ while studying the arts. They may discover they are natural problem solvers or leaders. Drama and the performing arts serve to generate a rich array of reciprocal benefits for both students and our surrounding community.
I taught in the UK for many years, developing departments and working in a pastoral capacity with mainly sixth formers. I recently worked in an international school in Malaysia developing the drama department, and the IB Diploma.
I am excited and thrilled to be teaching at BCB and experiencing Brazilian culture.
