Eight Wednesdays of learning and performing for students ages 10-15.

In the After School Arts Program, Penn students from various performing arts groups teach drama, dance, voice, and musical instruments to local middle and high school students. All Penn volunteers are subjected to a criminal background check and child abuse clearance through the state of Pennsylvania. The semester’s lessons culminate in a talent show. The students will engage in a range of group and individual activities in pursuit of the following performing arts objectives:

• Acting and performance techniques
• Dance, movement, and choreography techniques
• Voice diction, projection, and intonation
• Hands on practice with diverse instruments
• Musical and theatrical improvisation 
• Confidence building skills
