Through the power of the arts the Educational Arts Team provides young people with experiences that transform hearts and minds. We believe that the arts are an essential way to help young people realize academic success, increase self-worth, and create a vision of a positive future.
Dramatic Impact helps educators improve student performance by bringing into schools our unique program of experiential learning strategies composed of hands-on professional training for teachers and in-class workshops for students. The elementary and middle schools we have worked with have reported increased student engagement, cognitive development, and social skills. As a result, they have witnessed statistically significant gains in the standardized test scores of participating students, both in language arts and mathematics. Dramatic Impact is an innovative non-profit initiative that grew out of our work as the Educational Arts Team, a leader in the field of arts education since 1974. After more than 30 years of dedication and a proven track record, we are excited to share our work with school districts nationwide.
