BALLET TO SCHOOLS PROGRAM

The Ballet to Schools program brings abridged, narrated versions of classical fairytale ballets to individual elementary and middle schools throughout Southern California. Narrated versions of beloved favorites such as The Nutcracker, are accompanied by well-developed Teacher’s Guides complete with ballet history, terminology and group activities that can easily integrate into the classroom curriculum. Presented through the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s “Arts Teach” Program, Ballet to Schools visits 10-15 schools each year and presents performances for more than 20 assemblies.
