The Co-op: Successful Performers Through Creativity Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Creative Opportunities for Optimal Performance (CO-OP) a program to foster success through creative performance skills in youth.

Create It Theatre” is a program designed to teach children how to become successful performers in life through creative theatre. This year they are expanding their 10-week program to a nine month after school curriculum called “The CO-OP."  The CO-OP is Creative Opportunities for Optimal Performance where we designed “games” that will teach creativity, confidence, and promote success through performing arts.

The CO-OP is a creative theatre-based program that enables youth (ages 5-14) to create their own production through interactive stories and games. The youth creatively put together stories to make characters come alive. Because it is totally from their imagination and creativity, the youth can modify characters as the production goes along and add more of their own personality.
The CO-OP was inspired by the popular creative theatre program, used by hundreds of young people (ages 5 and up) around the world. In creating the CO-OP, they redesigned the creative process of the theatre program and added more language to make them developmentally appropriate for all ages, carefully designing creative games to match each age children’s cognitive, personal, social, and emotional development.
The Co-op has one rule which is to deliver excellence because anything less would be unacceptable and anything more would be unrealistic.

The Co-Op is currently doing a Kickstarter campaign to help them assist in raising capital to expand their Create It Theatre program to a 9 month after school curriculum. The purpose is to gain accreditation, building location, permits, licenses, and hire more instructors. We will have an entire building and program dedicated to training youth to be successful performers in life.
