Educational Programs Pachyderms

 

Ballet Austin worked on the development of two new Pachyderm presentations in order to better illustrate two specific educational programs, Leaps and No Bounds and Build-a-Ballet. Each incorporates images and video clips of the educational programs that contributes to a digital narrative that provides the viewer with an overall sense of the programs’ quality and subject matter. Feedback from teachers regarding previous Pachyderms indicates that the presentations enrich teachers’ and students’ experiences at performances by providing an education resource before the program occurs. This expanded context leads to a deeper connection with the art. As with visual art, high-quality images and video are a pre-requisite for effective education and engagement of dance audiences. Continued support from MIDEA has allowed Ballet Austin to maximize the unique and varied assets of the Pachyderm format to build effective and valuable arts education presentations.
