There is an art to leading a great life. It comes from developing emotional intelligence, compassion, and creativity, balanced by analytical skills, courage and self-discipline. It requires attention to detail, integrity, and a hunger for excellence. Children who practice acting become skilled in all of these areas through play-based learning. It's great for kids because the novelty and positive associations they experience forge strong new connections in their brains. No sitting around taking notes! No lectures! We use movement, imagination, and self-awareness to help your child embody new life skills, and progress towards their goals.
