Young Audiences of Louisiana (YALA) in partnership with The Helis Foundation announced plans to expand their successful early learning program, Baby Artsplay!™, to eight cultural institutions across the city of New Orleans. Beginning this Spring, Baby Artsplay!TM will be offered as a series of six free 30-minute workshops held weekly to engage young children ages 12-24 months and their caregivers in research-based performing arts experiences that support their cognitive, physical, and social development. The Louisiana Wolf Trap Baby Artsplay!™ teaching method taps into children’s innate desire for active, multi-sensory learning through purposeful singing, dancing, and movement.
Young Audiences of Louisiana (YALA) has received $10,000 from Capital One Bank to support its afterschool science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs. The 15-week pilot initiative for students in grades third through eighth is operating at four schools in Orleans and Jefferson Parishes.
YALA currently offers stand-alone afterschool STEM lessons, and this program is its first multi-week, multi-school initiative. Participating schools include: Martin Behrman Elementary School, Morris Jeff Community School, Lincoln Elementary School, and Young Audiences Charter School at Kate Middleton.
