In some countries pupils rehears a theatre play in drama class, in other countries acting skills are trained or even skills are being trained wich haven’t anything to do with theatre at all. And in all countries we call it ‘drama class’.
What are they’re doing in drama lessons in your country, and for what purpose? Making plays, training skills, both?
In the Netherlands we mainly train skills and insights related to the artform theater. There is a clear difference between drama and theatre in the Netherlands.
Theater plays are rehearsed for Christmas and at the parting of primary school.
