Mission: To use music, movement, and drama to empower individuals of all ages and abilities to reach their full potential while creating, experiencing, and performing art!
Results: The growth Dramakinetics has experienced in the past year is a very telling measure of our effectiveness as an organization. In 2014-2015 Dramakinetics conducted 300 hours of programming around Cincinnati. In 2015-2016 we led 684 hours of programming in the Greater Cincinnati Area. The majority of these programs began when someone from the community specifically sought out our organization. The expanding community interest in our organization and doubling of our programming hours is proof that what we do is valued by Cincinnati families. Furthermore, we have collected preliminary data on the outcomes of our Creative Classroom program during the 2015-2016 school year that demonstrates DK's effectiveness in academics. This data showed an increase in SEL and Curriculum Comprehension. One class in this program was able to chart an increase in grades from an average of 67% during 2014-2015 unit on chemical reactions to 84% in 2015-2016. In addition, social-emotional learning shifted 25% to more positive, collaborative learning style, including attitudes, behavior and knowledge shifts, in the short term, for the majority of students.
