5. Competitive Drama (G6-12)

Competitive Drama is for students who need more individual attention and coaching for their “dramatic interpretation” competition or other drama related competitions. ADL teachers are qualified to prepare students for the most prestigious U.S. competitions such as NJFL or NFL. However, we can also train students for locally-held Taiwanese competitions.
