About the Performance Series


The performance series has been thoughtfully curated to offer attendees a unique experience that is both entertaining and educational.

Following each performance, the performers and their associated organizations will lead the audience through a workshop-style experience offering a deeper understanding of the concepts that fueled the performance and in many cases, activities that can be adopted for the classroom.
