Puppet Theater helps children learn the art of communication.
“Puppetry offers a chance to create a visualization of the thinking process. Seeing one’s thoughts facilitates empowerment and initiates the ability to discover intelligence and feelings, thus, widening the horizons of understanding others.” (Farryl Hadari)
If you’re not sure how to help your child learn Russian faster, more intuitively, overcome shyness or non-communication, then bring them to our puppet theater! This is a unique development class where puppet characters help children learn communication skills and start to speak correctly. Using multiple styles of puppetry, including marionettes, masks, shadow, mouth, and rod puppets, a child is not just a puppeteer but an active participant.
Students learn to empathize with the characters, distinguish good from bad, and grasp the price of loyalty, friendship, and even love.
How does it work?
It’s well established that pretend play has an important place in the intellectual and emotional growth of children. Academic research provides evidence that puppets have enormous benefits in learning at young ages.
Ultimately, children are developing awareness skills when using puppets, forming a foundation for reading and writing skills.
During these interactive lessons, children sing, play musical instruments, and read poems. Our “puppet directors” teach not only acting skills, but also critical thinking, helping children learn to analyze and draw conclusions, overcome uncertainty, find solutions, and express emotions. In the hands of children, the dolls come to life: they start talking, expressing emotions, acting. Participation in puppet shows trains the child’s memory and speech, expands their vocabulary, and helps lessen barriers in communication.
As a result, our “artists” learn better, communicate with their peers more easily, and become increasingly inquisitive and active.
Our puppet theater classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays and last 45 minutes. Don’t forget to bring your child to our trial lesson and make sure you fit it in your schedule!
