Teaching Awareness through Puppetry (TAP) teaches sensitivity, awareness and understanding of disabilities and differences through lively and entertaining puppetry. Our goal is to provide an educational experience to help students accept differences in themselves and in others. TAP covers a variety of disabilities, medical conditions and social issues. Performances are given by skilled volunteer puppeteers for children in grades 1-3, 4-6 and girls only grades 6-8. TAP’s highly-trained volunteer puppeteers travel across Toronto and the G.T.A. to deliver lively scripted educational performances. Through the magic of tabletop puppetry, the audience is encouraged to interact with the puppets in a safe and non-threatening environment. Each performance is followed by a question and answer period between the puppets and the students. Questions are answered in an open and supportive way.
Please contact TAP for more information about all of the topics that can be presented. To arrange a visit call 416-964-9095 or email email@example.com or visit TAP's NEW website: www.tap-toronto.com.
