After School Programs
Our after school programs for kids nurture life skills through theatre and other arts, providing the perfect opportunity for children to discover self-expression, gain
self-confidence, and inspire emotional intelligence.
- Theatre Troupe...
Using proprietary curriculum created in coordination with child psychologists, therapists and education specialists, highly skilled teaching artists foster social and emotional development through improvisational theatre activities.
Each day centers on a specific theme, all activities are delivered with the theme of the day as the central intention, and guided question after each activity deepens students' awareness and understanding of the themes. Social and emotional themes include tolerance, empathy, courage, self-awareness, acceptance, and more. Designed for elementary and middle school students.
- Arts Expression...
Expressive arts therapists create an environment to foster self-awareness and personal creation through five modalities of instruction: dance, music, visual art, creative writing, and theatre. Students gain exposure to a wide variety of art forms and have opportunities to discover and develop talent while also developing crucial social and emotional skills. Appropriate and adaptable for all grades K-12.
- Productions for a Purpose...
Productions for a Purpose
Students work with a director, choreographer, writer, and musician to produce a theatrical production from start to finish. The cast and crew first develop a central message they want to convey to an audience, then build a script and production around that values-centered theme. The production is then delivered with the intention of bringing awareness (and funding when appropriate) to an agreed-upon cause that they students wish to support.
For instance, students created a production to tell the life story and life lessons of a beloved teacher who had suddenly passed, with the intention of raising money to fund a playground project about which the teacher had been very passionate.
