Welcome to DramaTykes!
"Making a Production Out of Play!
We specialize in theatre and communication education of young children. We are a local business based in Des Moines, Iowa. We believe that skills learned through dramatic play and performance will provide life lessons—learning to communicate effectively, working well with others, confidence in self, and opportunities to think creatively and be creative! Drama also gives children a chance to move their bodies and improve coordination. We currently work with ages 2-5th grade.
Nothing is more fun than helping children be creative and dramatic! Teachers, CeCe Talley, Sara Nichols, and DeAnna Axness, are all licensed teachers. We all have degrees in drama, speech, and English.
We travel to daycares throughout the Des Moines and surrounding areas to provide once weekly instruction for ages 2 1/2-preschool. We also hold classes at school for children K - 3rd grade . We have also held classes at libraries, churches, schools, dance studios and even the zoo.
During a typical class children will do some or all of the following:
Circle with social speaking skills
Songs, fingerplays, dance
Basic theater skills
Create or use costumes, puppets, and masks
Prepare for a performance for peers and family
