Touring & Community Engagement
Due to the current pandemic, we are not planning to send our touring companies out to schools or community spaces this season. But that doesn’t mean we’re not ready to engage with you and your students!
However, we will be creating virtual content for arts educators to use in their classrooms all year, including lectures, skill shares, performances and more.
Are you an educator who would like to bring performances and theatre and dance curriculum into your class? Please contact Mary Anderson at email@example.com to begin the conversation.

Created by Billicia Charnelle Hines, Dr. RAZ Mikey Courtney, and Karen Prall, the Social Justice Project is a devised theatre and dance performance for Detroit Public Schools Community District, serving approximately 3,600 public middle and high school students. A new show will be devised each year to reflect the changing attitudes of race and privilege in Detroit.
This is dynamic dance company thrills audiences with quality African-derived dance and drum presentations, guaranteed to inspire, invigorate, educate, and entertain. The company celebrates rich cultural traditions from the African heritage, as well as the contemporary African-American experience.
The lecture-demonstration performance format is built to engage students in an experience of seeing and experiencing movement as a form of communication.
Our musical theatre outreach program aims to create an awareness and appreciation of the art of theatre and dance through an energetic and informative 50-minute performance.
Each spring, our children’s theatre company tours Detroit Public Schools Community District with a completely free production to introduce our youngest audience to the magic and wonder of live performance.
