Live Stage Production

Our live stage production is "edu-tainment," designed to explore important life issues such as "Bullying", "Disabilities", "All Lives Matter", and other challenges children may encounter. The characters from our movies will also perform in live stage productions for children worldwide. Our first live performance theme deals with the growing concern of bullying in today's society, with the entertaining Flashy Dancer as the spokesperson for these important issues.

Exploring Real Life Through Animation

The animation media as well as a live stage production will provide children with information in an entertaining presentation, such as a song, dance, music video, or movie short. With regards to the live stage production, our goal will be to reinforce and keep the banner of “Stop the Bullying” flying high among our students.


LEARNING TO COMMUNICATE

We address the communication between parents and children and/or children and teachers offering a way  to talk to parents and/or teachers about important situations in everyday life. Some common issues are: bullying; lying; self-image; health; peer pressure; rebellious behavior; and of course, the Birds and the Bees. These common issues facing young people today are presented in an entertaining, engaging and thought-provoking format.

STOP THE BULLYING
RESPECT OTHERS

BULLYING is unwanted aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated or has the potential to be repeated over time. BULLYING includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose.

In a recent survey, about 30% of students in the United States are involved in bullying on a regular basis either as a victim, bully or both. To exacerbate the problem even further, Cyberbullying is now on the scene. Recent school bullying statistics show that Cyberbullying is becoming increasingly prevalent on school property as well as involving students when they are not at school. Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Examples of Cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles. Cyberbullying statistics reveal that about 80% of all high school students have encountered being bullied in some fashion online. These growing numbers are being attributed to youth violence including both homicide and suicide.
