Title Description Cost
Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum Fun With Flight Education Programs for Teachers

Our Education Programs have been designed with teachers and their students in mind. Using the Ontario Science and Technology Curriculum as a guide, specific programs have been created to reinforce the "Understanding Structures and Mechanisms" strand of the guide. Programs at the Pre-school, Kindergarten Grade 3, 6, 7 plus Grade 10 history programs at the academic and applied levels are available. All programs use a student centered approach reinforced with many hands on activities. Classes are conducted in an aviation environment with classrooms situated beside or under the Museum's aircraft. Our professional staff consist of pilots, retired teachers and school administrators, Scout and Guide leaders and others who have a intense passion for aviation.

IN-PERSON DRAMA CLASSES FALL, WINTER, & SPRING 2020-2021
Children's Arts Theatre School

CATS FALL (TERM 1) 2020 PROGRAMMING

Children's Arts Theatre School could not be more excited to resume in-person classes this September with a student cap of 15 per class - and with COVID safety precautions of course! Our curriculum will still be able to look very similar to previous years, as theatre can be performed in many ways! What has been and will always be most important to us is that our students have fun and learn dramatic skills! We will be working on scenes from the beloved show You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown! This show could not be more perfect for our current world - a small cast of characters to create a socially distanced scene and a wonderful sense of joy that is needed now more than ever! The final performance will be professionally filmed and edited without an audience to ensure that we keep our students safe. If Disney+ can film hit theatre, then so can we! We can't wait to see the amazing performances captured on film and look forward to seeing you soon!

 

OUR CLASS AGE GROUPS:

Junior Drama (3-6 YEARS)

The focus of the Junior Program is to encourage cooperation and group awareness. The “good” group feeling generated by physical movement and energetic drama activities promotes trust in and sensitivity to others required for social growth. The Junior Drama program is designed to introduce storytelling, pantomime, improvisation, dance, drama and voice. The program culminates in a final performance.

 

Intermediate Drama (7-11 YEARS)

The intermediate Program is designed to introduce actors to specific techniques in order to develop their mind, voice and body for a confident and honest performance. Improvisation and scripted scene study provide fluency in acting fundamentals like conflict, action and given circumstances. As collaboration is essential to the creation of theatre, students will develop the social skills required to find creative solutions as a member of a team, to confidently give voice to original ideas, and grow respect towards the ideas of their peers. The drama curriculum introduces improvisation, script-writing, comedy, contemporary dance, role playing, mask, mime, voice, dance and physical theatre. The program culminates in a final performance.

 

Advanced Drama (12+ YEARS)

The Advanced Program builds on the fundamentals taught in the Intermediate Program to become bold and daring actors. Improvisation plays a strong role in the Advanced Program, allowing actors to follow their instincts and impulses. Character work is introduced, as well as drawing on the life experiences of the actor to share an honest and organic performance. The advanced drama program covers improvisation, script-writing, comedy, classical theatre training techniques, stage combat and musical theatre. The program culminates in a final performance.

School of Rock Performance-Based Music Programs Rock Socializing— With Social Distancing

Kids have been inspired in the School of Rock community for the last 8 and half years, learning music by playing music– together. Through programs designed for all skill levels, students go from lessons and rehearsal to performance– developing confidence, talent and teamwork skills along the way. Students, ages 7 to 18 engage in a private, one-on-one lesson. Those weekly lessons come with a bonus: the chance to be a rock star. Once enrolled, students become part of a band as well, and play in a socially distanced rehearsal each week. Bands are determined by skill level and age. They practice together for a season (about 4 months) and then play a show. This unique approach allows students to use what they learn from their teacher in the real-world setting of a band, comprised of their peers. They learn to rock on stage and in life.

School of Rock community members also have access to our one-of-a-kind, fully integrated Method app. The App provides an enhanced learning experience and reinforced practice schedule. Parents and students know what should be worked on and progress can be tracked.

Programs—Something For All Ages

Rookies

Ages 5-7. Fun musical activities and hands-on experience with guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and singing, so they can discover which instrument interests them most.
