BAC performing artists draw on the multiculturalism of Brooklyn and the array of repertoires citywide. We seek artists who can engage their audience, provide educational context and demonstrate a successful track record of performing in NYC public schools.
Our programs enrich learning in our schools while supporting artists’ contributions to our community. BAC assemblies educate and entertain through performance, narration, and student participation. Ideal performances are suitable for all age groups and are no longer than 45 minutes.
We select new assembly performance groups on a rolling basis throughout the school year. Special attention is made to groups that can provide performance dates for BAC staff to attend, or dynamic documentation (video trailers, etc.) of the group in a school or senior setting.
BAC Arts in Education selects performing artists and groups based on the following criteria:
Ability to Engage Our Audiences
Professional Experience and collaborative planning skills
