IN-SCHOOL RESIDENCY PROGRAMS

Through musical theater residencies held during the school day, TADA! engages students and teachers in active learning–through and about the arts during the classroom experience. TADA! uses theater to connect to school curricular units and gives students the skills to feel comfortable as musical theater performers. TADA! residencies incorporate the NYS Learning Standards and the NYC DOE Blueprint For Teaching and Learning in the Arts and provide a forum for creative and academic expression, while developing concentration, discipline, teamwork, confidence and public speaking ability.

In-School Residencies include:

  • Musical Theater Skills Building Residency: Students learn the skills necessary to participate as musical theater performers. Class begins with vocal exercises, acting games, stretching and dance. Students also learn musical numbers from TADA!’s repertoire of over 30 original musicals, written expressly for performance by children. Material may be chosen around a topic or concept from the current classroom curriculum.
  • Musical Theater Writing Residency: Students learn the skills involved in writing, composing and performing an original musical. Under the guidance of professional writers and composers, students create the libretto and score for an original musical. Students then rehearse and perform their original musical. This residency incorporates the academic curriculum extensively. The residency may also allow students to explore important issues in their lives. Past scripts have focused on topics as varied as immigration, Greek mythology, neighborhood history, teamwork and drug prevention.
  • Literacy-Integrated Residencies: Students use material being read in class to explore literary themes using drama, movement and song in preparation for an assembly program at the final session.
  • Professional Development: Classroom teachers learn how to incorporate theater arts, music and dance into their curriculum. (More information below.)

AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAMS

After the school day, students learn the necessity of teamwork as they put together an ensemble performance piece involving dance steps, songs and scenes. These workshops help to improve the group dynamic by addressing varying learning and behavioral styles. In addition, these programs help children develop theater skills.

After-School Programs include:

  • Musical Theater Skills Building: Students learn the music, dance and theater skills needed to become competent musical theater actors. Music is drawn from TADA!’s repertoire of over 30 original musicals which were written expressly for performance by children. Program includes: two Teaching Artists (music director and director/choreographer). Up to 20 students per class. 2-hour and 1.5-hour sessions available.
  • Musical Theater Play Building: For schools interested in a more in-depth residency program, TADA! offers a two-part creation and production workshop. Students create an original mini-musical or play, rehearse the scenes and songs, and perform it for the school community. This format may use thematic material as suggested by the school. Past scripts have centered on topics as varied as immigration, teamwork, and tolerance. Students work on their writing and performance skills, and the use of musical numbers to promote fun, active learning. Program includes: two Teaching Artists (music director & director/choreographer). Up to 20 students per class. 2-hour and 1.5-hour sessions available.
  • Drama Workshops: These workshops focus on the skills of the non-musical theater actor. Acting games, improvisation and scene development are used to prepare a presentation for family and schoolmates. Students explore ensemble work, develop theater skills and create characters as they work with topics as varied as world cultures, comedy, immigration and conflict resolution.

School and Student Programs

Green Girls!

Green Girls is an innovative program that encourages girls to excel in the sciences and realize their potential to create change within the natural environment and their own lives.

The three-week Green Girls Summer Institute, going into its sixth summer, serves 30 girls from the four Young Women’s Leadership Schools in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, with hands-on activities and trips to parks and natural areas, wildlife refuges, and cultural institutions. Green Girls provides middle-school girls with intensive summer experiences that enrich their understanding of science and environmental justice issues, familiarize them with New York City’s vast natural and institutional resources, and promote leadership and life skills. Ultimately, the Green Girls Summer Institute helps girls explore their own vast potential and the extensive career possibilities available in the sciences.

These carefully-selected and sequenced activities address a variety of science subject matter, including environmental education, ecology, biology, geology, zoology, and botany. Sessions encompass an array of environmental and environmental justice issues that focus on community problems and the need for green spaces, water conservation, air quality and the natural world.

Coastal Classroom (4th Grade and up)

Discovering the Secrets of Our Aquatic Ecosystem! Coastal Classroom – offers workshops in parks along the waterfront, focused on coastal ecology, aquatic habitats, water quality, and urban waterfront restoration and preservation.

Hands-on activities in our parks are among the very best opportunities to learn about ecology and the environment. Few places in the city provide better resources for active learning about our natural world and the issues we face in preserving it than our parks.

Coastal Classroom provides young people (4th grade and up) and community members of all ages opportunities to “get their feet wet” in some of New York’s coastal hot spots. Situated within the Long Island Sound watershed, participants delve into New York City’s waterfront and explore the world beneath the waves through exciting, meaningful programming. See the present state of our water resources and get a glimpse into the challenges of future preservation efforts.

Seed to Trees (1st Grade to 4th Grade)

Since 1992, Seeds to Trees: A Field Based Environmental Education Program for Public Schools has introduced NYC children to science and nature in the urban environment through classroom activities and unparalleled field experiences. Seeds to Trees reinforces core academic skills while continually experimenting with new models and strategies.

Seeds to Trees Early Childhood Program: City Parks Education’s interdisciplinary nature and science pilot is specifically designed for children who are 3-4 years old. This program emphasizes science observation, sensory awareness, creative expression, literacy and analytical skills development. In a series of 3-5 sessions, plant and animal themes are introduced via songs, stories, movement and craft projects.

Seeds to Trees for Elementary Schools (1st-4th Grades): Seeds to Trees offers an inquiry-based, dynamic program in the span of four months—either in the fall or in the spring. The program includes lessons on topics relating to the natural environment and environmental stewardship, such as learning about the forest ecosystem and the effects of pollution on the health of a forest and the water supply, among other topics.

Learning Gardens

Learning Gardens brings garden-based learning to NYC schoolchildren and community members. UsingNYC Parks gardens, we present engaging interdisciplinary lessons in core subjects. Students in grades pre-K – 8 and their teachers receive learning materials, curricula, and tools to enhance their use of the gardens.

The environmental education idea is simple: build a communal garden, combine it with a series of wonderful lessons, and then invite community members—schools, senior and day care centers, families, and organizations—to work on their gardens and cultivate valuable benefits.

We serve over 2,850 community members, children, and teachers through school, out-of-school and summer programs. The program is open to groups that are within close proximity to (e.g. close walking distance) the gardens. All scheduled classes, workshops, and events take place in local parks: at Grove Hill Community Playground in the Bronx, the Umoja Community Garden in Brooklyn, in Liberty Park in Jamaica, Queens.

Youth Made Media

Youth Made Media (YM2) is a multimedia/technology after school program offering video production training, media literacy, new media, academic support and life skills training. Launched in 2004 out of the Red Hook Recreation Center in Brooklyn, Youth Made Media expanded in 2009 to operate in all five boroughs.

 During the school year, the program is open from 2 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; in the summer, we conduct an Intensive Summer Institute, four days per week, to train youth in all aspects of production.

Through multifaceted activities, these programs help kids discover their unique talents and aptitudes, while mastering valuable technology skills and exploring careers and workplaces. Participants gain experience in using a broad range of standard and specialized industry software for video and sound editing. These programs provide a safe space where teens can share with one another, develop leadership skills, forge a group identity, and serve their community.

Balls & Tracks

“Staff is knowledgeable and engaging. The program is simple enough to understand, but with opportunities for complexity and thought.” —Ken A., 2nd grade teacher

“Students had a wonderful time and learned how to work together, to test their creations on a regular basis and that science is FUN!” —Carol M., 5th grade teacher

After observing gravity, friction and momentum in action in the Raceways exhibit, your class will work in groups to design their own unique Raceways track. Kids are the engineers as each team of students designs a roller coaster track using only the materials given to them. In addition to putting their problem-solving skills to work, your students will improve their teamwork abilities. The design challenges will be adjusted to suit your grade.

Money Matters
Money Matters is an early financial literacy program designed especially for students in grades K-4.

Together as a group they will explore the many ways that members of a community rely on each other for goods and services. This program aligns with Massachusetts Standards in both Economics and Mathematics.

Age recommendation:Grades K-4


Global Stories

If objects could talk…

Boston Children’s Museum has been collecting objects from around the world for nearly 100 years. In this new school program for Grades 2-4, we invite students to put on white gloves and take a closer look at the Museum’s collections. We’ll open our eyes to just how much we can learn from careful observation of a single cultural artifact and what it tells us about its origins: Who made this? What is it for? What is it made of? Is it old or new? Where is it from? What makes you think so?

This multidisciplinary program will feature selected collections pieces representing Europe, Latin America, North America, Asia, and Africa*. Using a variety of media, students will explore the geography and culture behind the objects, how form fits function, and common threads across the human experience. Students will then incorporate these concepts into an original 2D or 3D work of art inspired by their observations.

Age recommendation:Grades 2-4, Grade 5 by special arrangement

Alignment with Massachusetts frameworks:

Visual Arts for K-4: 1.2, 2.5, 3.1, 6.1, 8.1

History and Geography: 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 4.1, 4.4


*A note to educators: we have some flexibility to select objects that align with your classroom units and grade frameworks; for example, we sometimes can accommodate requests for Native American or Chinese objects. Call or email us for more information.

Literature Live Program at Bay Street Theatre

What is Literature Live?

LITERATURE LIVE! brings the power of the word from the page to the stage.  Using curriculum-based literature, Bay Street Theatre creates a unique learning experience by bringing professional theatre artists together to present first class productions.  The possibilities for insight and understanding of the subject matter are only increased when students can witness the characters from a great play or novel living and breathing and telling their stories right before their eyes.

Why is it appropriate for schools?

Bay Street Theatre will select standards-based literature, and this program will be supported with teacher-developed lesson plans and reference materials.  In addition, we will provide a “Q&A” session with the cast.

Who should attend?

LITERATURE LIVE! is designed specifically with middle and high school age students, their teachers and administrators in mind.  In addition, Bay Street Theatre will present the play on weekends for family audiences, and other types of groups (such as seniors, churches, and temples) who may wish to attend.
