Education and Outreach

The Rosin Box Project is committed to the growth of its artists AND to the growth of young minds in the arts. In 2020, TRBP has launched several education initiatives aimed at connecting students to the performing arts. Learn more about our innovative programming below and please contact us if you would like to learn more about partnering with us on projects with your school or classroom!

**Please note that all work in Southern California and Baja California will remain virtual until such time that the CDC recommends otherwise. All of our programs contain virtual and in-person modules that allow for the same student experience, regardless of method. All virtual modules are available internationally!

Open Rehearsals on ZOOM 

Ever wondered what the process of building dances looks like? Curious to experience a day in the life of a professional dancer? Join TRBP for our Open Rehearsal Series, where we invite students to observe the creation process and watch as professional choreographers build dances with the artists of The Rosin Box Project. 

Classrooms will watch either in person OR online, then participate in a group talk-back with the choreographers and dancers! Students can engage with our international roster of dancemakers. Join the TRBP family for this on-of-a-kind dive into the minds of some of the most celebrated creative talent in the dance world. 

*Rehearsal Series will only take place virtually through  January 2021 to ensure the health and safety of all students. Participating classrooms will  receive a zoom link and a worksheet with information on the artists two weeks before joining the Open Rehearsal.

DANCE  IS FILLED WITH ACTIONS! Learn about ballet and analyze language choices in TRBP's flagship arts integration program, THE BALLET MACHINE. This innovative approach to language learning combines physical activity with learning words and building sentences in a two-part workshop that facilitates digital AND in-person learning. Our K-5 program is available to San Diego and Orange County schools on-site, but completely virtual versions are accessible by partner schools across the United States! We relish the chance to work with your classroom to explore and enhance language lessons in a new way, all while empowering students to excel at something new in the presence of their peers.


Ballet Machine FAQ

But if I have insurance, why do you hold my damage deposit?

Damage Deposits are held for any damage that occurs on your rental.This means any damage done to our vehicle will be held from your damage deposit which you can later invoice through your insurance agency for reimbursement. We bill $300 for scuffed wheels (per wheel), $500 per damaged tire (if rubber has been removed from the sidewalls) and $1000+ for major dings/scratches/body damage on the body. We also have found a direct correlation between the funds held and how our vehicles are treated, we expect our vehicles to be treated as if they were your own.

If it rains can I get my money back? Can I cancel my reservation and get my money back?

We ask all clients who leave a deposit on a car to be 100% committed to the reservation. We do not offer refunds for early rental returns, rainy days, or any other types of returns. We are actively turning down reservations for that same vehicle you reserved once you've reserved it, this is why we can't afford to give you money back for circumstances that aren't within our control.

Do I need insurance to rent a vehicle from Veluxity?

Yes. All renters must be 24 years of age or older and possess full coverage insurance on an existing vehicle that is transferable to rental vehicle (specifically an exotic/luxury vehicle). If you have a liability only insurance policy it will need to be upgraded to full coverage at least 24 hours before your rental. We currently offer no exceptions to this policy, unless you have an AMEX Centurion or Platinum card with viable traveler insurance.

Can I rent the car for one day on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday? How about renting it for a few hours?

Unfortunately we do not offer hourly rentals, and we do not secure one day rentals in advance on weekends. If you happen to be reading this on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday if we have a vehicle that hasn't been rented for our two day minimum we can possibly offer a one day rental. The reason our policies are set up this way is because from a business standpoint this industry is a weekend business. For that reason, we can't tie up a vehicle for one day on a weekend because we will more often than not be turning down a 2 to 3 day rental for that same time period.


Train with Professional Dancemakers Next Summer!


Coming soon to the TRBP stage: YOU! Our first-ever summer intensive will focus on giving dancers one-on-one coaching and feedback from The Rosin Box Project's company dancers AND expanding roster of guest choreographers. A selective group chosen from a national call for high school and college students will shadow our artists, acting as apprentices for a four-week immersive experience. Learn company repertoire, work with nationally-renowned choreographers and artistic collaborators, and perform work in a professional performance at our theater, The Tenth Avenue Arts Center.

Dancers will also take additional technique and conditioning classes and receive personalized coaching from health and wellness professionals. TRBP staff will also share their marketing secrets and focus with you on promotion and branding, as well as offer professional development feedback over your month-long stay in sunny San Diego, CA.
