Lenore Blank Kelner, founder of InterAct Story Theatre, defines arts integration like this:  

In education, arts integration refers to the equal incorporation of an art form and another content area into lessons so that objectives in both subjects are addressed. To integrate an art form with another area of curriculum, authentic connections must exist between the two subjects.
— "A Dramatic Approach to Reading Comprehension" by Lenore Blank Kelner and Rosalind M. Flynn, 2006.
 The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts defines arts integration as follows: 
Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form. Students engage in a creative process which connects an art form and another subject area and meets evolving objectives in both.

At InterAct, we believe strongly in arts integration and in linking the arts with student learning. It's the guiding force behind all of our work. Everything we do is designed with clear and clearly articulated learning objectives connecting to standard state curricula in both our art forms and the content areas.
