Tiny Toes in the Studio: BTM's Access to Classics Program for Preschoolers
With generous support from the PNC Foundation, Venable Foundation, the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, Frank's Fund, and individual donors, Ballet Theatre of Maryland makes classical dance and creative movement accessible to underserved preschoolers and their teachers. Tiny Toes in the Studio develops new knowledge, skills and inspiration about dance, music, theater that children and their teachers integrate into core skills in pre-reading, social sciences and math. The program is designed as a series of four sessions with each preschool class to enable lasting change in teacher’s skills and children’s development.

Mini Performances and Access to Classics for School Children
Mini performances are especially staged for students and held at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts. Each performance is approximately one hour long and is preceded by a brief talk to help the students enjoy and appreciate the ballet to follow. Arts integration lessons in language arts, social studies, science, physical education, visual art and music are easily implemented from subject matter of the featured ballet. We hope you will consider this cultural, learning experience as a field trip for your students!
Through generous support of our Access to Classics Program by local organizations like Annapolis Rotary and the Severn Town Club, BTM provides a limited number of school children free admission to our mini performances.
