ABOUT US

Life is like a play

PLAY TOGETHER is a newly founded performing arts school devoted to making education equal for all children. We aim to discover, awake and strengthen children's full potential by nurturing their multiple intelligences through dramatic play. We believe learning transfers to life and beyond, enabling children to flourish in the way they love, they enjoy.

WHY? DRAMA & MUSICAL

Five advantages

to act out real life situations to learn emotional expression. The

experience extends children's evaluation of and awareness of

own feelings and ofemotion-eliciting events as well as
