We Are NewArts

NewArts provides students with a mastery experience in the performing arts for children of all levels and aptitudes. The performances are the culmination of weeks of challenging efforts; they tangibly demonstrate to the students the extraordinary results of their own hard work. NewArts was developed by a team led by Michael Unger, our artistic director. The team includes Broadway-level professionals including Tony Award winners and nominees spanning all aspects of theater production. The theater community brings a sense of openness and support into the mastery program and also places the highest standards for rigorous rehearsal processes and staged theatrical productions.

What Is A Mastery Experience?

Through the mastery experience, children learn and achieve age-appropriate proficiency in an activity. When faced with challenges, each child has the opportunity to develop perseverance and a growth mindset. The mastery experience creates a culture of grit by fostering an environment whereby children work together and challenge one another to succeed.
