At Expressions, we promote academic achievement by incorporating the arts, particularly the performing arts, into the basic curriculum outlined by the Florida Standards. While we are able to infuse art into every subject offered, a typical daily schedule focuses on vigorous academic components in the morning, and the rotating arts components of music, drama, dance/movement and visual arts in the afternoon. We believe that these daily art activities are essential in order to enhance the development of skills needed to excel academically. Our methods have a positive effect on the achievement of all children, regardless of their initial skill level, talent, abilities, or previous exposure to the arts.
