Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble’s outreach program raises arts awareness through off-site performances at preschools, public schools, community centers, senior citizens facilities, and support agencies.
BYDE presents dance mini-courses at area elementary schools. Children learn about dance technique from a trained professional, experience the joy of movement, and participate in a performance experience.
BYDE also visits area preschools on a rotating basis to present dance workshops for children. Preschoolers get the opportunity to participate in a creative movement class led by BYDE staff and meet a BYDE ballerina.
In addition, Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble offers financial need scholarships, discounted and complimentary theatre tickets to senior citizens and school age children. We are always looking for local schools or organizations who would be interested in a performance. Do not hesitate to contact us for more information.
