The School Of YES!
The School of YES! is a multi-disciplinary arts academy in Southern Dallas curated by Cara Mía Theatre Co. The mission of The School of YES! is to give young people the skills to say “yes” to a future of their choice rather than feel pressured into a future defined by their environment. The School of YES! offers free tuition to at-risk youth in communities of color throughout the year after-school at specific school locations. The School of YES! is also open to all applicants for a month long summer camp in June and July for ages 7 - 14 with ten paid student leadership positions offered to applicants ages 15 - 18.
Students participate in classes that emphasize communication skills, collaboration, and the creation of original artwork through theatre, music, dance, visual arts, film-making, photography, and leadership instruction. The School of YES! provides students the courage and tools to pursue their own projects in their own communities, thus strengthening cultural and community relations while providing a sense of ownership and strong social responsibility.
The teaching artists for the School of YES! are respected professionals in their fields. Students have the opportunity to interact with successful role models that look like them and in many cases are from their communities.
Applications for the 2017 Summer Camp are currently CLOSED.
