Each YAMA Program…
Through assembly performances in auditoriums, theaters, function rooms or classrooms, our artists bring school curriculum to life through dance and movement, music, theater, and storytelling.
Assembly programs are generally 45–60 minutes in length, unless otherwise specified.
In our residency programs, students get multiple contacts with our teaching artists who integrate their art form into other subject areas. Each residency is planned in collaboration with classroom teachers and customized to fit the needs of the curriculum and school. Some details:
School Workshops: Our workshops are introductory, hands-on sessions that allow groups of up to 25 students to practice an art form with professional artists in a focused environment. Programs last 45–60 minutes. Programs can be added after an assembly to reinforce its content or scheduled as one-day sessions to address targeted curricular needs.
Community Programs: YAMA’s expert staff will work with your school to develop afterschool and/or community programs that focus on the arts and meet specific curricular and/or social goals articulated by your school or organization.
