Dream A World Education recently completed the Secrets of the Heart Residency program for Kindergarten students at Leo Politi Elementary in Los Angeles.

Principal Brad Rumble reports, “I have no doubt that Secrets of the Heart is the highlight of this school year for the 100 Kindergarten students of Leo Politi Elementary School who participated in the six-week multi-arts residence program. For that matter, the program is a schoolwide highlight in that it immersed the students in experiences which will remain within them always.”

Secrets of the Heart is a six week residency program for children K-2, which uses music, dance, theatre and visual arts to teach kids about friendship, kindness, imagination and gratitude.

Each residency begins with planning and professional development, curriculum materials, a live performance, and culminates with a children’s presentation of song, dance and storytelling. Each class receives a professionally recorded copy of a class song they create. The next residency program was recently scheduled by Dr. Michelle Windmueller, principal of Selma Elementary and will begin for their kindergarten students at the beginning of the school year in September of 2011.
