This intro to arts is about more than just performing. It is designed to address each school's specific academic and humanities needs. As with all of our classes, the After-School Partnering creates a nurturing environment for your Student Artists, thereby allowing them to feel comfortable to take risks, embrace challenges and discover themselves.


SHINE! uses the California Visual and Performing Arts Standards (VAPA) as a reference, which directly aligns our training with our local education systems. The result? Dynamic programming that integrates the arts into curricula. We are focused on the process, not the product. Our goal is to provide an introduction to the theatre arts (acting, singing, dancing, stagecraft) with the hope that the students begin to develop their creative selves. Natural by-products of our arts programming: improved reading comprehension, stronger critical thinking skills, enriched language skills and a deeper understanding of teamwork and accountability
