Theater

Theater is the performing art that brings all others together, drawing upon movement, oral storytelling, music and visual arts to weave a spell over an audience. Its emphasis on keeping rapt attention through multiple means of engagement makes it a powerful teaching tool. YAMA’s programs span the academic subjects, breathing life into myths and historical figures, putting poetry into motion, revealing stories and puzzles behind mathematics and helping students practice the scientific method through theatrical experiments. We also use theater to help study interpersonal relationships and conflict resolution.
