Passion is at the core of what we do and how we do it. Our professional teaching artists and educators are experienced actors, directors and producers in theatre. They bring their wealth of experience and knowledge into the classroom. This creates an enriching, exciting and nurturing environment.
Youth are the experts to their lives. We invite them to reflect and examine their life experiences as a way for them to make sense of themselves and the world around them. In addition, in the world of theatre, they are offered the opportunity to step into the shoes of the characters they play. Through these characters, youth develop a deeper understanding of empathy and cultural relativity.
Theatre can be challenging because we ask youth to step out of their comfort zones, try new things. This is why we emphasize on the power of a positive attitude. This approach teaches our students how to respond to challenges and solve problems creatively.
We encourage our students to bring their story, knowledge, curiosities, interests, thoughts and ideas to PEAK. Our student centered teaching approach, empowers them to be engaged and invested in their learning.
