Theater helps children and adolescents develop their imagination, and improve their mental, social and emotional intelligence. Within a theatrical group, each with their own special role, a student develops skills and learns the value of collaboration towards a common goal. By impersonating various heroes, one activates his thinking, stimulates his imagination and begins a journey towards a dream universe, where he will be called to process events, seek causes and results, and form an opinion.
In the specially designed spaces of “Once Upon”, acting, dance and music come together and form a fairytale environment. In three thematic rooms - floors our students will be taught the art of theater in all its aspects.
Students: Pre-Kindergarten - 9th Grade
The main objective of the program is for students to be initiated in the art of dance and kinesiological expression. Students are taught to stand and walk while properly controlling their body. Modern Dance increases muscle strength and develops joint agility while controlling body weight. All this is achieved with the help of diaphragm breathing, which enhances the heart and expands the elasticity of the lungs. The benefits, however, are not just physical. Music contributes to mental balance and dance is a manner of expression, an escape from daily routine.
Students: Day Care Center - 6th Grade
Through musical and kinetic practice young students develop their musicality, rhythm and imagination while exercising their body, mind and their expressiveness. In classes with older students, the integrated teaching of classical ballet begins.
The aim of the program is for our students to learn to move in harmony, following the rhythm of music with coordinated movements. The result is the acquisition of grace and improvement of posture.

The main objective of the extracurricular Computer Science program is to better familiarize students with the computer and new technologies, through experiential activities such as creating electronic newspapers, programming games, creating movies, etc.
Extracurricular Computer Science program is enriched with MinecraftEdu and Hackathlon in order to transform learning into a game!
MinecraftEdu -a version of Minecraft specially designed for classrooms- is an open world that promotes creativity, collaboration and problem solving. Through MinecraftEdu, students attending the extracurricular program will learn from science, art and even poetry!
Hackathlon is a game based on a simple yet impressive idea. Every student has to break "break" secret codes and navigate from level to level on our specially designed educational websites. To do this, he/she needs to solve mathematical and several other puzzles, search for information, edit diagrams, explore maps, and so on. In Hackathlon, students play while learning and learn while playing!
By participating, students acquire growing incentives to develop a healthy and simultaneously creative relationship with the computer and to cultivate a programming-centered way of thinking through enjoyable activities.
