PHOENIX YOUTH PROGRAM
In a world where the appreciation of the arts – especially in education – is dwindling by the minute, it is important to ensure that our future generations get a well-rounded artistic education. This is where our Phoenix Youth Program steps in. By participating in one or more of our classes on a weekly basis, not only will your child have fun – but will learn valuable life skills that are sometimes overlooked at school!
Why Choose a Theatre Program?
Young people who participate regularly in the arts (three hours a day on three days each week through one full year) are four times more likely to be recognized for academic achievement, to participate in a math and science fair or to win an award for writing an essay or poem than children who do not participate.
Getting up on a stage and singing gives kids a chance to step outside their comfort zone. As they improve and see their own progress, their self-confidence will continue to grow.
The arts strengthen problem solving and critical thinking skills. How do I express this feeling through my dance? How should I play this character? Learning how to make choices and decisions will certainly carry over into their education and other parts of life—as this is certainly a valuable skill in adulthood.
