The Young Americans Music Outreach Tour is coming to Greendale!

June 6, 2010

The Greendale High School Music and Drama Departments in partnership with Young Dance Academy in Oak Creek will host THE YOUNG AMERICANS for a 3-day workshop September 12-14, 2010!

 

Budget cuts have caused the removal of music programs in our nation’s schools, and with them, a chance for millions of talented students to discover ways to express themselves creatively. The International Music Outreach Tours were created by The Young Americans in 1992 to bring music back into schools, opening doors of discovery for the musical talents of young people.

 

The International Outreach Tours have touched lives in nearly all 50 states and beyond including Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Ukraine, Gibraltar, Spain, Poland, Sweden and Japan. More than 150,000 students have participated in these exciting workshops and many more are waiting for The Young Americans to visit their cities and schools.

 

Research Shows music programs:

* Enhance a young person’s self-esteem

* Help develop critical thinking and self-discipline skills

* Improve students’ cognitive development

* Enhance basic math and reading abilities

* Increase school attendance

 

The comprehensive 3-day performance workshop will cover everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more. Hundreds of students from 2nd through 12th grade learning to work together, to respect each other’s strengths, and to discover their own potential - all through the universal language of music and dance.

 

After three days of intensive performance instruction it’s show time! The Young Americans perform the first act, then to the astonishment of parents, friends, teachers and administrators the participating students perform the second act with The Young Americans. Approximately 1000 people from the community come out to see this amazing show!

 

Music brings people together for many purposes: teamwork, respect, accomplishment, caring & self-discipline, a sense of living in understanding in self-worth and MUCH more.

 

The Music Outreach Program aims to:

- Encourage music in the schools of our nation and the world.

- Train young people in performance.

- Share insight and understanding of different cultures.

- Strengthen character and develop self-esteem, self-worth and self-discipline.

- Students involved in Music Programs...
