Educational Performances

The chief goal of an educational performance is to give students the opportunity to experience live performances in a theater setting. Students not only see professional artists on stage, but also learn the importance of light and sound to the theatre experience. After the performances there’s time for questions and answers with participating artists and artistic directors about the performance, the artists’ backgrounds and education, and other topics of interest to the students.

Choregus is a participant in the Any Given Child Initiative, a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, in partnership with The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, The City of Tulsa, Tulsa Public Schools and The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. The goal of AGC is to assist communities in developing a plan for expanded arts education in their schools ensuring access and equity for all students in grades K-8. Choregus Productions is pleased to provide at no charge a contemporary dance performance for every 8th grader in Tulsa Public Schools (4,000 to 5,000 students).

Choregus has partnered with Tulsa Public Schools to write a curriculum guide to be used by teachers to prepare students to attend educational performances. Many companies provide study guides that further connect their performance and the performing arts to the school’s broader core curriculum. In addition, Choregus Productions and Tulsa Public Schools has prepared a study guide for contemporary dance.

Donations to the Choregus Productions Education Fund enable us to continue to offer these educational opportunities. Click here to donate.
