Did You Know?
At its core, acting allows people to engage with their emotions and provides an outlet for self-expression and self-discovery. Perhaps this is why Oscar Wilde once said, “Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth.”
This is doubly true for children, who are at a stage in life where personality and self-expression are constantly in flux. By becoming involved in acting, they are given a safe space to explore who they are and how best to represent themselves in a judgment-free zone.
Despite these benefits, fine arts programs around the country continue to experience funding cuts. Take a look at the statistics to the right to see why we should be spending more money on fine arts exposure, not less. For more information on these statistics visit The American Allegiance for Theatre & Education's site.
