The Stages to Schools program includes virtual performances of two ballets, teacher resources and an interactive component where students can connect with the dancers. Younger students will watch the ballet Dracula, while older students will see the Nutcracker, both under the direction of Ms. Phyllis Papa, Artistic Director of the Atlantic City Ballet.
"We understand there have been dramatic changes to how teachers educate students during these challenging times," said Alexandra Pieroni, Managing Director, Atlantic City Ballet. "We also know that many times the arts are left out due to time or resource constraints. We want to help students experience the Atlantic City Ballet right in their own school."
"We believe the Arts in schools enrich the lives of young people today and give them a broader perspective on life," said Gary Hill, Founder, Schultz-Hill Foundation and sponsor of the Stages to Schools program. "We want to keep the ARTS Alive for all."
Based in Atlantic City, the Schultz-Hill Foundation promotes and supports Education, History and The ARTS in South Jersey. For more information, visit www.schultz-hill.org.
