Gateway Academy's motto, "Creativity, Courage, and Connection" reflects the essence of what is required for successful theatre artists. These elements also contribute to the success of an individual in whatever walk of life.
Creativity enables us to think (with our brains and our whole bodies), and gives form to our feelings. It can facilitate problem-solving, bringing something to life from nothing.
Courage allows us to give and receive ideas, to try new things, to take action, take risks. It gives us strenth to express ourselves, and to grow.
Connection supports us, as we learn about ourselves and others. It makes room for compassion, for empathy, for understanding of our differences and identifying our similarities. It expands our relationship with the world around us.
I invite you into a year of Creativity, Courage, and Connection with Gateway Academy.
See you in class!
