MUSICAL THEATER

Do your children love theater? Not all children will jump at being in theater right away because it can challenge their personality and character. The best way to introduce it is by going to a local children’s theater production or try a part in your local homeschool cooperative. No need to push. Some children are extroverts who will love being on stage and are ready to try out for the leading part. Other children may be more introverted but okay with a supporting role, supporting cast or be on the stage set/sound/lighting team. No long lines to learn if that’s not what your child wants or if he’s too young. Most productions offer parts of all sizes for various ages.

The benefits, of participating in theater, are worth the time and effort. Theater builds great life skills of empathy and insight into other people’s inner lives, making those involved richer emotionally and more compassionate beings. Students of the arts gain confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, the ability to organize and prioritize, self-reliance as well as work well with a team, be poised, responsible, and skilled in leadership. Research and statistics show students in the arts consistently score higher on exams and are more likely to receive academic notice from schools,

Students of the arts gain confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, the ability to organize and prioritize, self-reliance as well as work well with a team, be poised, responsible, and skilled in leadership. Research and statistics show students in the arts consistently score higher on exams and are more likely to receive academic notice from schools, colleges, and competitions. Not only will students gain knowledge on subjects covered in the production, but also in who they are and what they can do.

I highly recommend you consider adding theater to your homeschool regimen. Look for opportunities within your local homeschool groups and community. If you’re local to the DFW area in Texas we’d love to have you join us at the Living Wisdom Learning Center. Our Theater classes begin February 6th, 2017. For additional details please, click here.
