East Bay teachers and students comment on Oakland Ballet Company’s “Discover Dance” Program.
“…The students left the theater curious, delighted, and ready for their next theater experience. Thank you for exposing my students to the wonders of the performing arts.”
—3rd Grade Teacher, Santa Fe Elementary, Oakland
“I don’t ever get to see things that are this beautiful!” —Student, Allendale Elementary, Oakland
“The Oakland Ballet is a gem in our city. Oakland students are blessed to have
you include us in the arts.” —Mary Lou Stenger, Teacher, Franklin Elementary
“I was very pleasantly surprised and touched when Graham Lustig welcomed our school to the performance during his introductory comments. That served as a human connection with the experience which set the stage for the live performance and provided our students with a distinct contrast to “screen” experiences.” —John Panagos, Teacher, Lakeview Elementary School, Oakland
