Through a combination of teacher workshops, in-classroom residencies, a field trip, and teacher resources, Arizona Wolf Trap uses performing arts to help young learners master a variety of skills, including language development, gross and fine motor coordination, concentration, memory, verbalization, and positive self-image.
Collaborating with early childhood educators, professional teaching artists are placed in classrooms for seven weeks (14 sessions). These sessions use music, movement, and creative storytelling to help children with curriculum topics. Special attention is given to language development and pre-math and pre-reading skills.
Fall residencies take place between October and December. Spring residencies take place between February and May.
