Through creative arts, children and young people with disabilities are encouraged to maximize their potential in a supportive setting that celebrates music, movement, theatre and fine arts. The use of music, dance and imagery through art allows the participant an alternative path for self-exploration and communication. Participants will experience increased ability to move with more ease and freedom; development of a deeper trust and respect for their body; increased self awareness, self confidence and self discipline, as well as team building; development of listening and concentration skills along with social skills; and promotion of a sense of pride and achievement.

SPECTRUM IN SCHOOL


SPECTRUM THEATRE WORKSHOPS
A team of teaching artists will come into your school and put on a shortened, modified version of a musical with your students. The show is tailored to fit the needs of your student’s age group and abilities and will include music, movement and dance as well as utilizing students as part of the tech team. This is a great workshop for expanding Speech and Occupational Therapy exercises as well as working on social skills. It provides a fun and rewarding opportunity for teamwork and builds self esteem and confidence! Shows standards such as ‘Wizard Of Oz”, “Oklahoma,” “Cats,” “Alice In Wonderland”,” High School Musical” and a Disney Showcase are examples of the types of musicals that have been successful. We can also take a classic story and write an original script with music. The possibilities are endless and very rewarding. Our skilled and experienced teaching artists find ways to make every participant shine. Grades K-12
