Help Keep Theater in Walgrove Elementary

5:29am
Walgrove Elementary is having its 6th annual Walk & Dance-a-thon this Friday, May 6th. The event will support theater programs at the local Venice public school.
The school  “believes theater and the arts are important for a child’s whole learning” and provides an in-school and after-school program that is free to all students.
At a school where nearly 40% of students are from low-income families, the programs are something  many students would not get the opportunity to participate in elsewhere.
The in-school program, PS Arts, has been specifically designed to integrate and mainstream the school’s over 20% special-needs population.
The after-school program includes a Musical Theater Workshop where children learn to dance, sing, and act, culminating in a full-length musical performance.
