InterAction is a school and performance company for youth; offering classes, workshops, and performance opportunities in a safe, professional, and creative environment, emphasizing personal development within a group setting. InterAction believes that a learning experience which integrates arts education into the traditional core curriculum is essential for enhanced academic and social development. The creativity children and teens hone at InterAction deepens their feelings of empathy and compassion towards others and equips them to ‘think on their feet’ in a calm and focused way. Through classes, professional productions, and our community outreach programming, InterAction has become a significant producer and facilitator of youth culture, tourism, wellness and sustainable growth in the region.
InterAction aims to:
•Create a safe environment for youth aged 3-18 and their families to explore creativity
•Nurture self-confidence, pride and positive social skills
•Teach youth the communications skills needed in life, in the classroom and in a professional setting
•Enhance children’s social development, which can lead to improved academic performance, study habits and peer relations
•Partner with community organizations to provide performing arts activities and teaching to young people across the region.
About InterAction School of Performing Arts
Formed in 2001 as a Theatre Performance Company for children aged 3-18, InterAction students are trained in all aspects of performance, with a strong focus on creative self-expression, self-confidence, and group work. InterAction’s teachers and directors are professional actors, dancers, choreographers, musicians, performers, and educators, who create a safe, fun, and energetic environment in which children feel free to create, challenge themselves, make lasting friendships, and learn.
For the past 19 years, InterAction has been creating high calibre live performances for the Southern New Brunswick region. The audiences for these works include school children and the general public. Last season, over 6000 audience members were entertained, enlightened, and engaged by our performances at The Sanctuary and Imperial Theatre.
