For Students and Classes 

In-School Residencies

Through workshop-style programs for teachers and students, BAM brings the transformative power of the arts to schools. With programs in Shakespeare, African dance, poetry, and more, residencies help develop a deeper understanding and greater appreciation of the arts.

BAM residencies provide teachers with teaching strategies, study guides, and classroom tools tailored to city and state learning standards, Common Core State Standards, and the Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts.
