Two little girls in purple and pink dancingThe Dance Program is designed to encourage children’s natural enthusiasm for movement. Technique is not emphasized at this level, although groundwork is laid through the development of kinesthetic awareness and self-management. Students learn to recognize and demonstrate the basic dance elements of time, space, and energy/dynamics. Through the process of exploration, students discover how to utilize these elements to arrive at multiple solutions to creative movement problems. Students create, perform, analyze, and evaluate their work, and begin to understand dance as an art form.


Drama Letters hanging on a clothes lineThe Theater Arts Program encourages students to explore themselves and their world through creative drama. Students will develop thinking and learning skills by imitating, speaking, moving, creating and sharing. The dramatic process provides students with opportunities to express and understand themselves and others in a positive way. They develop and apply teamwork skills through the creative process. They also explore beginning playwriting, characterization and technical theater. As creative drama activities become more complex and demanding, students are encouraged to concentrate,
display creativity and become risk-takers.


Art in colorful paint lettersThe Visual Arts Program begins with the introduction of skills and concepts. The art classroom is an environment that encourages the growth of social skills such as self-reliance, cooperative behavior, and courtesy as students share supplies, perform classroom tasks, and make and discuss their work.

From creating typically rudimentary forms and using limited linear symbols for objects, students move toward developing a rich and detailed vocabulary of shapes to express thoughts/ideas.
