Kidsworks offers opportunities for students of the East Valley to participate in the arts at an affordable price. Our primary focus is on the youth of Indio, Coachella, Mecca and Thermal. Students will be nurtured to achieve their personal best. Our instructors evaluate their participation, personal growth, and performance in their final production.
More than a training ground for the arts; it is a safe and nurturing environment where community is emphasized, friendship valued, and personal growth celebrated. We see it as the ideal place for children to learn about the arts and develop creative skills. Our program focuses on all forms of theatrical production, teaching children comradery, leaderships skill, and produces lasting bonds between campers. DTW instructors are trained in helping children overcome shyness and assist them with any learning obstacles, bringing out the best in the student. We at DTW wish all provide have a life-changing experience through use of the arts and are happy to provide this unique opportunity.
