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.
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.
