THE SCHOOL OF ALBERTA BALLET
EMERGING ARTISTS IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Imagine older children working with younger children, sharing experiences and fun where everyone learns together. The Emerging Artists in YOUR community program is designed with these goals in mind.
This program provides educational fundamentals and arts enrichment to elementary school aged children in the Calgary area by engaging them through:
○ literary arts
○ physical activity
○ creative thinking
○ peer-to-peer learning
The School of Alberta Ballet’s Emerging Artists will introduce ballet to elementary school aged children through storytelling, mime, dance and interactive creative movement. The children will learn the movement and dance and then be encouraged to create and perform their own stories.
Designed to accommodate any space, the program can be presented in elementary schools, community centres and libraries within the Calgary area. Each presentation runs for roughly 60 minutes.
