ECI on location
Boston Ballet offers fun and engaging off-site movement-based programming for individuals ages 10 through adult. Schools and organizations can choose specific areas of focus based on the unique needs of the population they serve.
In addition to an incredible movement experience of their choosing, participants will receive one opportunity to attend a Boston Ballet performance or one special "behind the scenes" opportunity at Boston Ballet's Headquarters in the South End. Upon program approval, we work closely with your site to determine which opportunities would best enhance the experience of your group - including a costume shop tour, private company class viewing, or a special class in our studios.
As with all of our programming, ECI On Location classes promote health, wellness and social/emotional growth in a safe and supportive environment. They incorporate multiple styles of dance that reflect our diverse community and are taught by highly qualified faculty with extensive backgrounds in teaching and dance education. If you are a school site, instruction can integrate arts and academic learning standards and core curriculum.
