In most places, the voices of today’s youth are not heard beyond the limits of their peers; BATC’s student outreach programs is not one of them. Each year, we impact thousands of students through a myriad of year-round arts education programs for seniors and youth including a robust summer theater camp where we teach five clusters: music, art, dance, theatre and life skills such as eco-arts, anti-bullying and financial literacy workshops. Select community partners include the Dallas Library, The Family Place, the City of Dallas Office of Environmental Quality and Frost Bank. We are also a Big Thought organization where many of the programs are offered during the after-school hours and performances are staged during the school day. Young people who participate and attend these workshops and performances have an opportunity to utilize artistic expression as a means to unlock the mysteries of various cultures, enlarge their view of the world and build lasting communities. At a time where technology can be increasingly isolating, theater is an engaging resource for all ages.
