The aim is to develop clear articulation, diction, creativity and confidence through speech exercises, creative movement games, rhythm and rhyme.

"Tokyo Bees drama workshop was great! My students truly enjoyed their time with Tenie. The activities encouraged the use of imagination and it allowed students to express themselves in a creative manner. The workshop has sparked an interest in drama in my students. Drama transcends language differences and it is a wonderful tool for developing confidence in children." -Grade 1 Teacher, Tokyo
