Education and Outreach
See your impact leap forward.
This holiday season, TRBP celebrates goals accomplished, horizons conquered, and new dreams unfolding. Thanks to our YOUR generous support in 2020, the company performed LIVE for the first time in two years in downtown San Diego. The dancers inhabited their first-ever artistic home in ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station. Our education and outreach programs reached hundreds of students, both virtually and in-person, across the region. Your gift, your generosity, your kindness made a statement and brought dance leaping back into San Diego’s culture community.
This Giving Tuesday, we humbly ask you give to expand that impact, and to give to a dance community that is determined to showcase the art form as a pivotal pillar in the San Diego arts scene. Your end-of-year gift today helps TRBP showcase internationally renowned artists like Myles Thatcher of San Francisco Ballet to high school dance programs, and to reach 45 classrooms and over 2,000 students in 2022 with TRBP’s Ballet Machine. Your donation touches the lives of hundreds of adult dancers, both recreational and professional, now taking class with TRBP in Liberty Station. A donation today, whether large or small, creates a driving force as we grow into a leading voice for contemporary ballet and dance education in Southern California. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for your commitment. Thank you for bringing impact to the arts this Giving Tuesday.
Open Rehearsal Series
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
What is Arts-Integration?
How much does Ballet Machine cost?
For Ballet Machine, including our prerequisite video and our 1 hour in-person session, the total is $500. We recognize that this amount may feel large for some classrooms and student groups, so our staff is prepared to work with your Principal, Superintendent, or PTA to facilitate covering the cost of the program. Once we've identified that the program is the right fit, our staff will also work with you on Grants to cover costs for the future.
I'm a busy teacher...is there added work for me?
NOT AT ALL! Our staff has tremendous experience organizing and facilitating these kinds of programs. After contacting our Managing Director and establishing a time frame, we will be in charge of scheduling, working with your school leadership, and all the other ins and outs of managing the program. All you have to do is introduce us on "the day of the show!"
What core standards are addressed in Ballet Machine?
Ballet Machine is a K-5 program that covers the National and California Standards.
The Rosin Box Project strives to curate world class performances in an intimate and accessible manner to diverse and inclusive audiences. We understand, however, that despite our efforts, there are still many individuals who cannot attend our performances. We whole heartedly believe it is our duty to share this art form with the entire community, and therefore imperative that we bring the show to them.
As a part of our Out of The Box initiative, during our 2022 Season: Interplay, TRBP will offer free LIVE Outreach performances, on site for underserved communities and businesses.
We believe in art’s ability to transform, inspire, and transcend the everyday. We also believe that everyone deserves the solace, inspiration, and community that art can bring. Thank you for helping us serve our beloved community!
