We are so excited to have recently been recognized in Dallas Child Magazine as one of the “best performing arts programs in Dallas”.
In planning our Fall classes and workshops, we mindfully developed a program that would give children of various interests and skill levels a taste of the performing arts, both behind the scenes and for the those who want to be on stage or in front of the camera.
Our Fall curriculum was designed to also better prepare your child for our upcoming musical theater production (announcement will be made soon) by honing key skills, stage-presence, character development, and movement to name a few, so that confidently they are prepared to bring their A-game when auditioning and performing in front of an audience.
By working with some of the best instructors in the Dallas area, you can be sure your child is learning and being challenged to be the best they can be in an inspiring, safe, nurturing environment. Joe Trifiletti, Director our junior cast and Linda Leonard, Director of our senior cast for our upcoming Spring production, will both be teaching several classes this fall.
With the school year just starting, please keep in mind the performing arts improves academic performance as well. Numerous studies have demonstrated a correlation between drama involvement and academic achievement. In addition to having higher standardized test scores than their peers who do not experience the arts, students who participate in the arts often experience improved reading comprehension, maintain better attendance records, and stay generally more engaged in school than their non-arts counterparts. This is just one of the many ways the gift of the performing arts keeps on giving.
If you have any questions about classes, workshops, or our program in general, please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, I kindly ask that you continue to spread the word about J Performing Arts Space (JPAS). You help us make a difference.
