At Denver’s Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy, teachers are using the Cinderella story as a way to introduce young students to theater and get them acquainted with literature from around the world.

The funding for arts education is being cut in schools across the country, and Denver is no exception. Yet a well-rounded education should include arts and theater, as it helps to build so many important skills. From self confidence to collaboration and team work, these are skills that every child uses forever. The good news is that the city’s summer theater camp programs abound for children of all ages. All offer a variety of theater education, production and play, and they are all taught by professionals with a true desire to help your child grow and learn.
