School-Time Performances

Share the power of world-class art with your students! These exciting, thought-provoking shows are specially chosen to speak to young audiences. Each performance is complemented by a pre- or post-show workshop, led by a BAM teaching artist, which deepens engagement and sparks creativity.

Workshops are approximately 45 minutes, included at no cost for each registered class.

After registering, a BAM teaching artist will follow up to schedule the workshop(s) no less than three weeks prior to the performance or screening. Schools outside the Greater NYC area may not be eligible for pre- or post-show workshops due to distance.
