2020-21 Digital Student Performance Series:

Bringing Ballet to Your Classroom or Living Room

OBT remains dedicated to giving students of all ages the experience and excitement of watching ballet through our Digital Student Performance Series! OBT is planning some creative ways for students to do, watch and wonder about dance.

In concert with Oregon state standards for competency in the arts, OBT’s Education and Community Engagement Department crafts thematic frameworks for each performance that supports literacy in academic subject areas.

Join us in the theater as we invite student groups of all ages to experience the joy and excitement of live dance performances during the school day. In age-appropriate programs that feature OBT company artists and School of OBT dancers, students are given an opportunity to see fully produced works of ballet, which may include live music.

In concert with Oregon state standards for competency in the arts, OBT’s Education Outreach Department crafts thematic frameworks for each performance that support literacy in academic subject areas. Participating groups may download multi-media support materials and OBT Education Outreach Study Guides free of charge.

For an additional fee, school groups may apply to receive a pre-performance presentation in their classroom by an OBT teaching artist that includes student participation and a post-performance reflection designed to get students thinking about how the arts impact our lives. This is great for groups that are new to ballet or for those who wish to expand and deepen the experience. Call today to schedule your school group—limited availability.
