Early Learning

Through a balance of demonstration and audience participation, captivating live performances by Young Audiences artists challenge students to think creatively.   Professional development workshops for teachers conducted by our program staff and teaching artists may be tailored to meet the particular needs of an individual school or an entire school district.   Imagine young children learning basic math, science and reading skills by acting, singing, and dancing.
