The Molly Blank Fund Performances for Students

The Molly Blank Fund Performances for Students

The Performances for Students Series at ASU Gammage provides K-12 students with an opportunity to see incredible artists from around the world and the opportunity for teachers to incorporate these performing arts experiences into their daily curriculum. Educational study guides are provided as part of this program to help students learn about the arts by incorporating vocabulary into their daily lessons. Additionally, students experience a variety of cultures and learn the importance of specific art forms and the impact of the arts on the surrounding world. Students learn to connect arts to every day school subjects like dance to science and music to math, all culminating in a live experience that thrills the senses and allows the imagination to come alive.

Tickets are $3.00 per student/teacher/chaperone. All performances begin at 10:30 AM and last 1 hour. 
Please plan to arrive by 9:30 or 10:00 a.m. to allow for enough time to seat all guests.
