Arizona Wolf Trap

Through a combination of teacher workshops, in-classroom residencies, field trips and teacher resources, Arizona Wolf Trap uses performing arts to help young learners master a variety of skills, including language development, gross and fine motor coordination, concentration, memory, verbalization and positive self-image.

Collaborating with early childhood educators, professional teaching artists are placed in classrooms for seven weeks (14 sessions). These sessions use music, movement and creative storytelling to help children with curriculum topics. Special attention is given to language development, pre-math and pre-reading skills.
