Educational Outreach

In our 2015-2016 season, Ballet Yuma presented special school performances of Peter & the Wolf, The Nutcracker and Hansel & Gretel. We have also offered the fantastical, much loved production of Ballet de Seuss and the fairytale Snow White in seasons past. In doing so, thousands of area students have been introduced to quality performing arts and all the possibilities that come with creativity and a dedication to excellence.

If you think your school would like Peter & the Wolf to come to your school or for your students to attend a school performance of The Nutcracker or Ballet de Seuss at Snider Auditorium or for additional information, please contact Jenn Coleman at 928-446-6770 or jennyjumpup@gmail.com.
