Lights! Camera! Imagination! inspires children to discover the performing arts and let their personality and creativity shine. Arts integration has been positively linked to student engagement, motivation and persistence in both formal and informal education. Active engagement in the artistic process allows children to develop and realize their creative potential, practice creative thinking and develop logical reasoning skills.
