Movement Toward Literacy

Movement Toward Literacy

Society for the Performing Arts supports exploration of the performing arts and creative writing as a way to enhance an individual’s ability to understand, interpret and appreciate written text and spoken words.

Movement Toward Literacy (MTL) initiatives utilize the power of the performing arts to teach components of literacy such as active listening, articulate speech, coherent writing and reading comprehension.

Classroom and after school workshops delivered by SPA teaching artists focus on the composition of original poems & monologues, the interpretation of poetry, and the creation of movement and choreography inspired by metaphors, imagery, and poetic language.
