Community Outreach


PVB, best known for the annual Nutcracker production at the Academy of Music, has run a theater based Educational Outreach Performance Program at the Academy of Music for the past 8 years. We are adding a new educational outreach program to provide educational programs in the public schools targeting young students from diverse communities.

Community Outreach at PVB

Each season, PVB donates Affirmative Action Tickets to area nonprofits catering to underserved populations. We have a very limited number of tickets, so please get in touch as soon as possible. Your request does not guarantee tickets, but we are dedicated to providing as many opportunities as possible through this program.


The goal of this project is to provide young children in grades K-2 from high risk backgrounds an opportunity to participate in the arts in an interactive environment in the classroom for approximately three to four 45 minute sessions and to reinforce awareness of and respect for their bodies.

Children will be given outreach education materials including a resource box that holds tactile ballet specific items like pointe shoes and leotards along with stories that many story ballets are based upon. In conjunction with the teacher, PVB Outreach Coordinator and the PVB Artist will determine which items will be needed for curriculum.
