Slam Poetry

Slam Poetry offers a rigorous, multidisciplinary learning opportunity through the arts that builds students’ ability to express themselves in a confident, clear and meaningful way. Through a series of 10 in-class residency sessions and an optional culminating Poetry Slam competition, students learn literacy skills of writing and public speaking from a professional poet teaching artist.

Through participation in the Slam Poetry program, students will:

  • Increase their awareness of the various poetry devices, techniques and forms;
  • Enhance their performance skills;
  • Improve their writing and speaking skills;
  • Enhance their vocabulary;
  • Learn to generate ideas through writing and brainstorming.

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
"For myself, I want to be happy. Motivation to succeed. For humanity, I wish for there to be more understanding, without disregard or hate."
