Is your tween a natural ham? Consider getting him or her into performing arts through drama, comedy, chorus or dance. Even if your child quails under the spotlight, don't rule out performing arts. There are opportunities backstage for kids who are less comfortable under the scrutiny of an audience. Look for programs at:

  • Local schools
  • Community theaters and playhouses
  • Church
  • Drama or comedy clubs for youth
  • Ballet schools
  • Local arts associations
