Virtual Programs

Part of Education

BAM Education’s virtual programs provide greater access to world-class art, making it easier than ever for teachers to give students blended learning experiences that further contextualize topics studied in the classroom.

Combining high-definition video excerpts of BAM performances with activities led in real time by a BAM teaching artist, these workshops spark dialogue and enrich comprehension of socio-political and artistic movements. Young minds become open to a new kind of creative engagement with academic material.
