Frequently Asked Questions
What are the benefits?
How will my child benefit from participating?
The primary goal of AAT is the development of life skills in children through participation in the performing arts. Within each AAT cast, girls and boys are equal; the disabled become able; the shy experiment with bravery; the slow are rehearsed to perfection; and the gifted become part of the whole. The lesson they learn is that all of them are necessary for the show to go on. Few arenas exist where responsibility is taught and learned so clearly. AAT provides a unique opportunity to learn the lessons of group dynamics while excelling as an individual – a lesson from art that carries into life. AAT strives to use participation in the performing arts as a vehicle to develop life skills including social skills, communication skills, self-discipline, a strong work ethic, an understanding of the team concept and self-esteem.
