Grades K—12

Virtual Programs

Part of Education

Can’t make it to BAM? No problem! Virtual programs are an easy, accessible way to bring the BAM Education experience into your classroom.

Each session features a high-definition video excerpt of a BAM performance, specifically chosen for its academic connections. Students deepen their understanding of the work and embrace their creativity through an interactive workshop led by a BAM teaching artist—streamed live into your classroom. Virtual programs also include pre- and post-show activities provided in an online study guide.
