Introducing Dance to Schools and Community Groups in the Pioneer Valley

At PVB, we are dedicated to providing opportunities for all children to experience the magic of dance and movement.

Pioneer Valley Ballet has created and designed the following

learning opportunities for the local community.

Please reach out to develop@pioneervalleyballet.org for more information.

Educational Performance Field Trip

WHAT:

During 75-minute programs guided by an experienced educator/dancer, students explore the setting, characters, and plot of The Nutcracker and Beauty and the Beast through the medium of ballet at the spectacular Academy of Music Theatre in downtown Northampton.

HOW:

Students learn how narratives are brought to life onstage with choreography, music, costume and set design, and makeup. Pre-professional and professional dancers perform captivating excerpts from the production and students may be invited onstage to demonstrate scenes from the ballet. This program culminates in a lively question and answer period followed by a meet and greet with dancers.

Please be in touch for availability and current costs.
