Spreckels Arts Education

"The future belongs to young people with an education and the imagination to create." President Barack Obama

Studies prove that young people involved in the arts perform better academically and show a greater involvement in community service.

Arts programs designed for young adults foster critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration and innovation. Young people who attend schools where the arts were integrated into classroom curriculum outperform their peers in math and reading who did not have an arts integrated curriculum.

Young people who participate in the Performing Arts (music, theatre, dance), tend to be more in touch with their emotions, able to verbalize what they are feeling and better equipped to deal with challenges as Adults later in life.

The Spreckels Performing Arts Center Arts Education provides a comprehensive experience for those young people who are interested in Theatre.  They are taught dance, voice, and acting techniques by top professionals from the Bay Area.
