The arts are a valuable part of the core curriculum yet they've been reduced or eliminated in schools across the country. In addition to satisfying state Board of Education requirements exposing students to Humanities, bringing your learners to curriculum-connected performances at the BCPA offer a multi-disciplinary approach to receiving and retaining information.
Whether it's literature-based studies or lessons in math, technology or history, we all learn differently and many students need to make visual or action connections to text or concepts. With titles ranging from classics like Anne of Green Gables to comedic kitchen science of Doktor KaBOOM!, the BCPA Student Spotlight Series proudly serves over 7,000 pupils a year in an historic world-class facility in the heart of downtown Bloomington.
