Arizona Wolf Trap

Through a combination of teacher workshops, in-classroom residencies, a field trip and 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-images (Wolf Trap is a national program for the performing arts in Virginia).

Arizona Wolf Trap Residencies

Collaborating with early-childhood educators in the classroom, 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. Fall residencies take place between October and December. Spring residencies take place between February and May.
