creativity, culture, community
As students, teachers and parents get back into the swing of the school-year schedule, ArtsBridge Foundation invites you to check out their upcoming Field Trips. These hour-long performances are presented by nationally and internationally renowned dancers, singers and artists, and are geared towards various grade levels from K-12. Not only are the trips incredibly entertaining, but they are tied to curriculum, providing enriched learning experiences. The cost is $10 per student. Field Trips are presented by ArtsBridge at the Cobb Energy Centre, 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339.
“Some people do not realize we offer Field Trips,” says said Natalie Barrow, Director of Arts Education and Community Outreach, ArtsBridge Foundation. “We want to welcome area schools and home-schoolers to our upcoming events. We do not have ticket minimums so a mom of three age-appropriate children, an art class with 30 students, or a high school’s entire 10th grade, are all invited to join us.”
Here are the first three Field Trips for the 2016/2017 school year:
Dance Theatre of Harlem – Friday, October 21 at 11 am – grades 3-12
This informal presentation on the art and science of classical dance includes a lecture and demonstration, and is a fun and accessible introduction to ballet. Excerpts from Dance Theatre of Harlem’s repertoire demonstrate how all the elements come together to create the magic of dance.
Artrageous – Tuesday, November 15 at 10:15 am & Noon – grades K-12
Watching a team of artists painting giant artworks at electric speed right before your eyes, and having them accompanied by amazing vocals, creative choreography, and high energy live music is an experience your students will never forget!
Red & Green – Thursday, December 1 at 11 am – grades K-12
Rhythmic Circus, the artists behind the enormously popular Feet Don’t Fail Me Now, present a brand new holiday production. Combining their signature style of rapid-fire tap and exuberant beatbox, with music you know and love, all will leave with the joy of the holiday spirit.
ArtsBridge provides a detailed Educator Guide for all Field Trips which includes insights, historical information, and additional resources for the focus of each trip. Field Trips are designed to meet state performance standards in a wide variety of subjects such as Social Studies, Science, Fine Arts (Music, Theatre, Dance, Art) and Creative Writing. Curriculum information can be found on the ArtsBridge web site in the listing for each trip, or in the Field Trips section of the annual Program Guide.
