Program Description

As conveyed by Encanto, the new feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, every child has ability. The gifted and talented child, however, needs unique opportunities to explore, nurture and understand their potential.

Students participating in MT Stage: Expressions! will participate in daily team building exercises, analyze lyric composition, theme, and meaning. Students will also experience a song composition session with a guest recording artist, a photography lesson from a professional photographer, and learn stage performance from a guest theater professional. Program continuity will be provided by a gifted education specialist who will work with the students in the morning on team building exercises.

In the afternoon, the students will be supported by a performing arts specialist who will provide the students with guidance and direction for creating their end-of-program student showcase.

MT Stage: Expressions! program will conclude with a special performance at UA Little Rock where students take center stage.

Thirty students from across Arkansas will be selected to participate in this unique and exciting experience.
