Early Learning

Imagine young children learning basic math, science and reading skills by acting, singing and dancing. The arts can stimulate memory, facilitate understanding, enhance symbolic communication, promote relationships and build confidence in students. Young Audiences Early Learning Program is based on these principles and provides children, ages 2 - 6, with educational experiences in music, dance, theater and visual arts through age-appropriate performances, workshops and residencies.
