North Pointe Ballet’s community outreach program has successfully delivered high-quality, professional ballet to community sites since the company’s inception in 2016.
Each outreach program includes opportunities for audience participation and features excerpts of full-length ballets performed by fully-costumed professional dancers. Outreach performances engage members of the community in a theatrical production differently than a traditional theater experience and offer audience members a chance to experience ballet up-close and learn what it means to be a professional dancer. Past tours have included excerpt from The Nutcracker, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and The Sleeping Beauty. Each tour offers a unique focus, including pantomime, storytelling, character development, and healthy lifestyles.
NPB’s outreach programs are specialized in one of three areas:
- Pre-K-5 educational workshops and
- Senior residential, hospice, or other treatment facility programs, and
- Civic family engagement.
Each program is 45-55 minutes in length and can be customized to accommodate schedule and audience needs. Cost for the program is $250. Discounts available for schools and facilities that qualify.
Current Outreach Tours
As NPB’s official Covid-19 statement reads, due to the circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and the CDC’s recommendation to cancel all events of more than 50 people through the beginning of May, NPB has suspended all rehearsals and activities related to The Wizard of Oz. Unfortunately, this cancellation includes NPB’s community outreach tour of The Wizard of Oz this April.
Bookings for our November 2020 outreach tour of The Nutcracker and our spring 2021 tour of The Wizard of Oz are now open! Avoid the waiting list and contact email@example.com today to bring a North Pointe Ballet workshop and performance to your school, facility, or community.
