Student Matinees

Ballet Nebraska partners with educators to bring students to daytime performances and workshops, reaching more than 7,000 students annually through education programs.  The ballet is pleased to present school shows to area students in partnership with educators who join us in the belief that the arts are a key component in the complete education of a young person.

School shows are shorter versions of our full-length productions designed with the student in mind. Each performance features a discussion with our artistic staff during the show and access to a custom study guide to help students and teachers prepare for the show.

This program meets many Nebraska Fine Arts standards for Dance.

Cost: $5 per child  | $10 per adult
School shows are available for public schools, private schools, or home schools registered with the states of Nebraska and Iowa. No general patrons, please.

I really enjoyed every part of the trip from getting on the bus to clapping when the show ended. I couldn’t take my eyes off the stage when we were there. I am very glad you donated the money for us to see the ballet. I will always have that memory in my head. I absoulotly [sic] love dancing and the show made me smile each time they danced. Which was all the time.  – Fifth grade student

Our building serves a primarily low income, high risk population. Most have very little, if any, exposure to quality ballet performances. It is amazing to see these young ‘tough’ kids soften during the performance, sit up, and pay attention.  – High school teacher

Thank you for paying for us to go to the really fun ballet. I usually don’t like ballets. But this one inspired me that ballets aren’t just for girls. My favorite part of the ballet was when Giselle died. I don’t know why. It’s probably because it was the most emotional part of the ballet. I could feel like I was in the village. Thank you for letting us go.  – Fifth grade student

Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the performance. It really added a special treat to the holiday season. Thank you for thinking of our kids and helping us make a difference in their life.  – Boys Town
