At SteppingStone we use theatre as a tool to grow emotionally and socially healthy young people who are meaningful contributors to our community. We believe young people are powerful makers of culture and positive social change so providing enriching arts experiences for their ideas to be realized is our first priority. Art making experiences at SteppingStone are rich, sometimes messy, collaborative processes from the first name game through the final sharing for family and friends. Teaching artists guide developmentally sound lessons and experiences that place young people at the center as artists, makers and designers.
Our theatre programs promote and develop five core values in student artists: Mastery, Self-Advocacy, Belonging, Inspiration & Generosity.
Inspired by your child’s favorite books, young artists work together in a process-oriented environment, to explore theatre foundations like physicalizing characters, story sequencing, and theatre vocabulary.
