In addition, we provide programs that are woven into our yearly schedule including summer day-camps, off-site after-school theatre programs, day-time home school classes, and a partnership with Special Kids Crusade (a local non-profit) through which developmentally disabled children and young adults participate in a mentor-supported musical production. All of ARIEL’s programs are performance based. Instruction in acting, singing and dancing is integrated into the rehearsal process.

I will respect parent volunteers, staff members, and other adults who are working so that I may have this experience. I will respect the building in which we meet and the property and beliefs of others.

I apply ARIEL’s values by conducting myself with courtesy and self-discipline, refraining from coarse or profane language, and following ARIEL’s dress code. If a conflict should arise, I will be part of the solution rather than the problem.
