Still here, and safer.
Rainey Institute’s After School programs offer a safe, enriching place for children to spend time after school. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic we have revised our programming to ensure we can keep our staff and children safe and healthy. This year, our program will run Monday – Friday from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, caring adults cultivate self-expression and social-emotional growth through arts education. A grab and go meal will be provided along with a high quality arts experience to children beginning at 2nd grade. Rainey Institute’s After School program designs include the following:
Grades K – 8
Expand your creativity and performing ability in Rainey’s Arts Enrichment after school program. Students participate musical theater or visual arts the first semester then switch for the second semester. Every child will get the chance to dazzle their family and friends in a final performance or showcase their art at Rainey’s Art Exhibition.
El Sistema@Rainey provides mastery-based orchestral instruction to students in grades 2-8, making music fun while inspiring focus and teamwork. Children study violin, viola, cello, or double bass through daily orchestra classes. Instruments are provided. Professional musicians and classically-trained Teaching Artists provide instruction and students perform monthly concerts for friends, family, and the community.
Rainey Dance Academy
Grades 3 – 8
Dance is more than a hobby. When taken seriously, dance becomes an obtainable option both professionally and educationally. Through Rainey Dance Academy (RDA), dancers will not only increase their technical dance skills; they will increase their awareness of achievable avenues within the professional world of dance. RDA offers:
- Pre-professional development for aspiring dancers
- Mastery-level training in various dance genres
- Educational instruction in Dance History, Composition, & other dance related subjects
- Ample performance & exposure opportunities
- Character development, connecting dance to personal growth & maturity
Campus International or E Prep & Village Prep Cliffs
Rainey Institute works with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Breakthrough Schools to provide transportation to our after school program from Campus International and E Prep & Village Prep Cliffs schools. Students are picked up once school lets out and are transported directly to Rainey Institute.
I like students to know more emotional competency, emotional self-awareness, and make better decisions in their lives which affects change on a social level.”
