Education and Outreach
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! 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!

What is Arts-Integration?Arts Integration combines visual and performing arts standards and common core subject matter to create programming that connects kids with the arts, all while reinforcing classroom knowledge in a fun and creative way! Programs like Ballet Machine are created with the help of teachers and education professionals, vetted by Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Departments for adherence to standards, and tailored to fit each classroom's trajectory over the school year. Our Ballet Machine program is a two-part series where classroom teachers can work with students in our pre-req video, then interact either in-person or via Zoom with a teaching artist AND professional dancers!
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!" **As some programs may be reliant on Grants for funding, our staff may be in contact with you about a program assessment or personal feedback.

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 program, TRBP will offer free Outreach performances, on site for underserved communities and businesses. Performances also include talk backs with the artists AND masterclasses (masterclasses are available upon request).
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!
Join instructors with The Rosin Box Project for a 10-week after-school program at your school offered in both Ballet and Hip Hop! Learn dance steps and action words, build choreography, and have fun.
