Description of Services

“..and the Rhythm of Life is a powerful beat, puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet.
To feel the Rhythm of Life, to feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers, to feel the tingle in your feet …”

Picture the scene: a student claps a rhythm and sings the accompanying rhyme. Now what? Next comes the delight of developing that into a play using story, scene, character, set, costume, props and make-up. Add music, song, instruments, and viola…Musical Theater !

Musical Theater requires active input rather than just passive response. It presents a forum for young people to “release” in a safe and healthy environment. Students can enjoy creating anything from a single scene to a whole presentation from start to finish, while learning all the elements necessary for individual and team effort. At the same time, they learn to forge a bond between studies and the world in which they live.

The Goal
The Rhythm of Life programs and workshops guide students, via Music, Drama and Dance, through the A-Z of building a performance, linking curricular studies along the way. Students study Music, Theater, Instrumentation, Dance, Costume, Make-up, and Visual Arts. Curricular links include Language Arts/Foreign Languages, Social Studies, and Health Education.

The programs are suitable for all students, including those with Special Needs.
