Teacher Professional Development

Cultivate skills and strategies to incorporate the performing arts into your lesson planning and teaching practice.

New Victory® believes the performing arts are an invaluable resource in the classroom, and works with classroom teachers and arts specialists alike, from Pre-K through 12th grade.

New Victory Education provides multiple opportunities for teachers and educators to grow professionally through myriad art forms, including puppetry, circus, dance and theater. Through art making, skills building, reflecting and discussing, participants gain practical strategies for art form-based teaching and learning.

Not only did I learn new teaching techniques and ideas to incorporate in my classroom, but more importantly; I had such a good time.
