Last week on May 22, more than 200 visitors representing various local schools and community programs attended the 2013 Arts Teach Showcase at the Center. During this annual event, artists from around the world performed various music, theater and dance skits while covering a variety of subject matters ranging from history to teaching math through music to dealing with bullying at school. This year a new record was set as 57 artists performed on three stages simultaneously.
The Arts Teach Showcase is a great opportunity for the community to learn about our education programs and to meet with artists directly to decide which programs are best suited to meet the goals of their school or organization in the coming year.
The Center’s Arts Teach program is one of many available through Segerstrom Center’s Education and Community Programs Department, which serves nearly 400,000 young people each year with programs both at the Center and in the community at schools, non-profits and civic events. The artists’ programs meet educational standards. Being one of the nation’s premier roster of teaching artists, all of them have auditioned and demonstrated their ability to enrich arts-in-education programs through performance and hands-on workshops with students and audiences of all ages.
