Research has demonstrated that the skills involved in acting and the theatrical arts help close the achievement gap, improve academic skills, and advances students’ motivation to learn. Students who study the arts also learn important life skills, including collaboration, imaginative thinking, decision-making, organization, visualization, empathy and tolerance.
- Story Theater Company provides several workshops each summer tailored to different age ranges.
- STC’s summer programs are one-week session in which students develop skills in the theater arts while building self-confidence in a safe and fun environment.
- Classes are developed by professional educators and led by a staff of top Performing Arts students and recent graduates from Iowa State University.
- Classes can fill very quickly. Class size is limited to keep the classes enjoyable for your child and maintain a proper teacher/student ratio. Classes are filled on a first paid basis.
- Grades are based on the grade the student will enter in Fall of 2019.
