CineMagic is a performing arts program for students in 3rd through 8th grade that builds self-confidence while providing standards-based instruction in singing, dancing and acting. It exposes children to the performing arts -- theater traditions and music styles, such as jazz -- that they might not otherwise be able to experience. The program culminates in a spring performance on a large stage.
CineMagic is unique in many ways, including:
It is a performing arts program that allows all students to participate regardless of skill
It uncovers and develops talent while teaching important performing arts instructional standards
It supports a dual cast when needed - meaning some 200 kids can participate while each cast can spotlight featured performers or talents
It has an extremely high level of parent involvement
The first CineMagic performance was in 2001. It was meant as a one-time activity but it uncovered a huge need for such a program and it is now offered annually.
