In addition to the public performances, EACB also gives third graders in East Alabama school districts the opportunity to experience the magic of ballet. The third grade students are bussed to the theater to attend a special Nutcracker production where they can meet and interact with the dancers.
TURN OUT REACH OUT
Apart from The Nutcracker, our dancers produce a summer dance showcase, Turn Out Reach Out. All proceeds from Turn Out Reach Out are donated to a local charity each year.
Our dancers and choreographers have conducted dance workshops for children at the Girls and Boys Club of Lee County, I Am My Brother's Keeper, and Esperanza House.
Classes that attend our school shows are given the opportunity to have EACB dancers and volunteers read the story of The Nutcracker and talk to them about the history of the ballet.
