What we're all about

84dcb641 8988 48c9 a31d 9084de715912
We are Drama & Music Class  students from Hamline Elementary, in the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago, IL. Some things we have been exploring are different artistic expressions & styles, empowerment through teamwork & collaboration, focusing on empathy & ensemble.
We would love the opportunity to end this school year with a field trip to see a live Performance of West Side Story at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. We have been studying the history and points of view of this relatable and classic story, and for most of us this would be our first time ever experiencing a live theatrical performance. Thank you!
