Silver Canvas will provide participants with a fun and supportive theatre experience, receiving expert instruction in acting, singing, dancing, staging and producing. Our Mission is to bring a professional artist experience to our performers by building skills through various rehearsal techniques and training. At the end of the program a show will be presented to the parent community.
As a past Curriculum Leader for the TDSB, current dance teacher with Arts Mackenzie (Performing Arts High School) and a writer for the Ministry of Education, Carly has expertise in bringing forth both the Ontario Curriculum and the PYP (IB) curriculum. The students will learn respect and cooperation through the group processes. Empathy, creativity and curiosity are elements that are focused on through out rehearsals. In all her years teaching the arts, it is clear that Theatre Studies build valuable, life skills such as confidence and commitment to achieving a goal.
Silver Canvas Productions has been a part of the fabric at Branksome Hall and other GTA schools for over eight years. We have built a relationship with teaching staff and welcome the opportunity to make connections for students from their daytime classes. Teachers often recommend our program to help build confidence in their students. We also work with the resource teachers and help build literacy skills with our students through out the process. Each child has a chance to shine in our program by getting guaranteed three lines and a singing solo. During the audition process each child has an opportunity to voice what they want to work on and we rework the show so that they build those specific skills.
