Carolina Ballet hosts teacher professional development workshops that provide educators with new and innovative strategies for using the arts in their instruction. Teachers gain knowledge about integrating movement, theater, and music into their lessons, and leave with lesson plans and materials that they can utilize in the classroom right away.
