Why the Arts?
The arts are essential in education. They provide students with the means to think, feel, and understand the world around them in ways unique and distinct from other academic disciplines.
One of the most rewarding benefits of using the creative arts in education is it provides students with an outlet to communicate information, ideas, understanding, and emotions. Through our TRU arts, we aim to help inspire students to develop self-motivation and enhance self-esteem.
Why We Create Dialogue
It’s simple! Dialogue is the greatest tool we have for bringing people together!
Why We Intertwine Music
Who doesn’t love music? We believe that there’s something so powerful about musical expression that has the ability to bridge cultures and time. By understanding the contribution of music, students are better prepared to live and work in multicultural settings.
Why We Combine Theatre with Real Life Scenarios
Save the drama for TRU! Through out theatrical skits and role-playing, students develop a deeper understanding of personal issues and a broader worldview by using the dramatic process of creating, performing and analyzing. TRU Theatre provides for a student’s self-discovery, self-definition and self-esteem.
