Theater in Action
New this year, we have a performing arts program for grades 4-6 in place of Dance with Dawn Dyson. The Theater in Action program is run through Creative Kids Playhouse and will be 9 lessons.
How it works:
Each classroom receives nine 50-minute lessons. The course material is tailored for each grade level and is aligned with extensive Common Core Standards related to theatre education. Performances will be held during the school day, during the final class meeting.
Why Theater Education?
Theater is a wonderful way to explore literature, looking at a situation from another’s point of view, develop empathy, expressiveness, and learn to speak with confidence. Students involved in theater improve reading comprehension, verbal and nonverbal communication skills, self esteem, as well as their confidence in their academic abilities.
