During the program, students have daily classes in acting techniques, musical theater voice and musical theater dance, including tap, jazz, musical theater, and hip-hop. The program culminates with all students performing The Music Man Junior in the Henson Auditorium.
We value each individual in the arts and strive to provide the necessary tools to be successful in the world of arts. We believe every student is an artist, and it is our mission to foster the artist within each child. Through exploration of the arts, students develop a broad and deep understanding of the world around them, greater intellectual development, and a well-rounded education.
We want all participants to make connections between arts and life.
At Newman, we believe that the arts are a universal language that is essential to the development of the whole child. The arts develop creative thinking and self-expression. They strengthen self-confidence and heighten aesthetic awareness, sensitivity, and the ability to visualize through the creative process. The arts can inspire conversation, reflection, civility and self-esteem building among all students. The arts increase their understanding of themselves, while engaging them in developing an appreciation for the arts. The arts teach honesty, kindness compassion, respect, responsibility, and what it means to be human. (Plus — it's fun!)
