Cost: No cost.

Brief Description (from website):

24th Street Theatre is proud to offer professional development workshops for educators through our Teaching As a Performing Art (TAPA) program. This program allows K-12 teachers to learn about the California Visual and Performing Art Standards in the creative environment of a professional theatre using props, lighting, costumes and more. TAPA is available in 2-hour, 4-hour or 6-hour sessions.

24th Street Theatre’s TAPA professional development workshops are like no other, allowing educators to train on the stage of a professional theatre where the power of live music, lighting, and sound is used to help teachers experience themselves as artists!

24th Street Theatre customizes content for all TAPA workshops. Of the hundreds of TAPA workshops we have created for thousands of teachers nationwide, no two TAPA workshops have ever been exactly the same. We also customize content for grade level. Principals and coordinators can request a 3-hr workshop or a full-day 6-hr session, or even a 2-day session.

TAPA teaches educators how to integrate basic performance techniques in the everyday classroom to make their job more rewarding and creative and to make their students better and more enthusiastic learners.
