Action in the Idea

THROUGHLINES designs and presents theatre and dance based professional development programs for schools and communities working with classroom teachers, arts specialists, administrators, arts organizations and teaching artists. Our work brings learning up onto its feet and takes dance and theatre experiences beyond the stage to impact teaching practice and learning through active inquiry..

The elemental connection between engagement in the arts and engagement in learning is at the core of our work. We involve learners in thinking through their body, joining kinesthetic and cognitive experiences to extend and deepen understanding about curricular topics and ideas.
