Drama Lessons

There’s no better place in Yakima to get acting and drama lessons. Drama is a creative way for students to express themselves in an accepting and safe environment. At Melody Lane, we teach classic theatre skills, improv, and pantomime to tap into students’ creativity and build their confidence and social ease.

In drama lessons, Melody Lane teachers encourage students to engage through theatre games, creative movement, and story enactment. We’ll use our voices, facial expressions, and body movements to portray characters.
