This fall, Upstart Crow launches a new program: MATINEE.
Matinee is a daytime, on-site learning environment for students, grades 1-5. Every morning, students participate in their remote classes or complete homework at their own desk, supervised and supported by Upstart Crow staff, with strict and consistent adherence to physical distancing and safety guidelines. We provide a stable internet connection with capacity for many users, so Zoom connectivity is never an issue.
Our programming also includes physical activity every day. After school work is done for the day, we move on to all things theatre! Students will enjoy activities such as socially-distanced improv, theatre games, movement for stage, set and costume designing, and weekly musical watch parties!
Utilizing effective safety tools such as masks, floor-taping, pool noodles, socially-distanced games, and more, Upstart Crow staff ensure students have the quiet space and support necessary to engage in schoolwork AND the opportunity to experience the life-enriching benefits of performing arts education. And, importantly, our Matinee programming enables parents to focus on their own workplace and home obligations, confident that their children are safe, supported, and engaged throughout the school day.
