Oklahoma City Ballet is proud to present, for the twenty-ninth consecutive year, the ArtsReach program for students in grades Kindergarten-12. Having been named a Governor’s Arts Award recipient for innovative programming in October of 1997, ArtsReach provides an exciting opportunity for all teachers and any others in your school who are looking for an interesting, fun and challenging way to bring arts into the classroom. ArtsReach serves over 4,000 students annually.
The program consists of the following components:
An 8-week curriculum covering ballet and its history with internet links to exciting ballet websites that include selections of music, beautiful dance photos and in motion ballet steps as well as other valuable information on the art of ballet.
A live performance by Oklahoma City Ballet’s professional company for students at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall. This year’s performances will be held on October 29, 2018 at 9:30 and 11:30. You will be able to pick a performance time when you submit your participation form.
Probably the most exciting thing about our ArtsReach program is that it’s ABSOLUTELY FREE TO ALL PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS! Thanks to the generosity of statewide and regional corporations, foundations, and individuals that underwrite this program every year, the only cost incurred by participating schools is the cost of transportation to the performance.
