Quality program for youth & adults of ALL abilities!
Spots available Wednesday Night at Life/Social Skills Program
SocialWorks – Mississauga Program
DramaWay’s SocialWorks has been running for four years and its’ programming is based on two of DramaWays’ long-time popular programs founded back in 1999. SocialWorks blends DramaWay’s well-known RhythmWorks and ExpressionWorks programs to create a quality Wednesday evening social event geared and modified for youth and adults with special needs (ages 12+ and up). SocialWorks is a great place to release energy midweek by enjoying physical dance routines while it is also designed to build life-enhancing independent living skills through our leadership training. Participants will develop their social and life skills while also improving their movement, musicality, and performance skills by exploring with theatrical activities while also learning original choreographed routines. Every year our curriculum is customized based on selected topics set out in self-assessment sheets completed by participants and their guardians. Using various drama activities such as role-playing, storytelling, physical theatre exercises and group discussions, participants will explore topics such as:
- Stress management
- Friendships and social skills
- Conversational and active listening skills
- Public speaking & Performance
- Manners, posture and hygiene
- Personal safety (ex: dealing with strangers, salespersons)
- Hobbies: developing independent recreational activities
- Healthy food choices
This exciting program culminates in a short end-of-year presentation where participants show off their skills for family and friends! Let SocialWorks help your child/teen take a leap towards a more confident and self-sufficient lifestyle.
Please bear in mind, this program will not run unless we have a minimum of 13 or more participants enrolled by September 16, 2016. Those who may have already sent payment/registration will receive a full refund if enrollment is low.
Help us spread the word! Incentive: Encourage a new participant to enroll, and DramaWay will provide you a credit of $25 towards future DramaWay programming.
