Letter from the Director of Education:
Rod Christensen, Director of Education
Why is arts education valuable?
Arts education offers invaluable opportunities to empower and transform individuals, shape society, and experience essential life skills in creativity, collaboration, reflection, self-discipline, communication, and compassion for others. The arts are elastic; they are highly adaptable to a wide range of learning styles and levels.
At TADA! we have Musical Theater programming that engages Pre-K to 12th grade students from all racial, economic, and social backgrounds. TADA! students learn, explore, and enjoy the world of Musical Theater through the: 1) foundational skills of acting, singing, dancing and playwriting; 2) arts integration of classroom curriculum; and 3) building children's critical thinking skills, artistic expression, collaboration and self-confidence. Through Musical Theater, we specialize in co-creating original material with youth that is based on a selected theme.
TADA! runs weekly in-school residencies, after-school classes, and school-break camps both on and off-site throughout the year to give kids valuable opportunities to learn and explore the arts using original songs from TADA! shows and age appropriate selections from Broadway and Off-Broadway productions. In keeping with our philosophy, each class provides learning for a range of ages and is team-taught by two professional Teaching Artists, which culminates in a Final Sharing in the last session. TADA! challenges each child to be the very best they can be!
Please contact us directly if you have any questions about our programming. We hope to see you at TADA! in a class, camp, or at one of our Resident Youth Ensemble shows very soon!
