Grow Up Great With The Arts

Carolina Ballet is honored to be a part of PNC’s Grow Up Great early childhood initiative. The Ballet is working in tandem with the North Carolina Museum of Art and Wake County Public School System to develop Grow Up Great with the Arts, a comprehensive arts integration program for Pre-K students in Title I classrooms. This intensive, in-depth initiative brings teaching artists from the Ballet into classrooms for nine-week residencies. The program will strengthen students’ literacy, numeracy, critical thinking, and motor skills through creative movement and dance experiences. In addition, teachers will receive extensive professional development that will enable them to use arts integration strategies in their classrooms in the future. The program is also committed to engaging the families and school communities in the Grow Up Great with the Arts initiative.
